PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous curly-bracket programming languages that are available out there. Any site or app built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is not really all that surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with plenty of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a particular website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

In case you purchase a shared website hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to ponder on whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since several versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click and in case you’d like to change the current version, the new settings will take effect straight away. In this way, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. Unlike them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We unremittingly believe that years spent creating a site should not be in vain, which implies that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, new or old. In contrast with a lot of hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Not only will you be able to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to choose a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will be applied in only a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never encounter any site compatibility complications.
