PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous server-side coding languages available out there. Any site or web app built with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not that surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with plenty of different options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve different web content to each visitor although the URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you’ll never have to ponder if your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click and in case you want to change the version, the new settings will take effect straight away. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we deem that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re unfaltering in our belief that several years spent creating a site should not go down the drain, which suggests that if you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it is new or old. In stark contrast to lots of web hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you have the ability to activate the version that you need from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to pick a different PHP version for each website. This can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the entire account and the change will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you will never have any site compatibility issues.
