PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used curly-bracket programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet application created with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to create a responsive website with heaps of features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will not change. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a given website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which means that your websites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old site doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of code modifications. This is the reason why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are unswerving in our opinion that years spent building a website shouldn’t be lost, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it is old or new. In contrast with a lot of hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never come across any site incompatibility problems.
