PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a famous coding language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features like discussion forums, online teaching portals or community web portals. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can show different web content to each user under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign on to from any browser, you will not need to possess any computer programming knowledge or previous experience to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only check if the server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you order a cloud website hosting package from us, you will never need to speculate if your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we offer support for multiple versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one click and in case you need to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. Unlike them, we are convinced that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a site built using a previous PHP version and you’ve committed time and efforts toward developing it, patching security breaches and inputting web content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosts today offer only the most recent version of PHP and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or misspending time and efforts trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to set a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
