PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a popular curly-bracket programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive components like forums, e-teaching portals or social networking websites. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can show different content to each visitor under the very same page URL. As PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any browser, you will not need any computer programming knowledge or prior experience to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites worldwide are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to check whether or not the web server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve reached a decision not to prevent our present and prospective customers from choosing the PHP version that their sites will be using, so in case you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you will be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not have to possess any technical or programming knowledge. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any complications, so if you want to abandon your current web hosting vendor and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years will continue to run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a website created in an earlier PHP version and you’ve poured time and energy into setting it up, patching safety holes and publishing web content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting providers these days support only the most recently released PHP version and abandon the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the version that your very own sites need. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 and PHP 4, which goes to say that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any manual tweaks or misspending time and efforts trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to set a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
