PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular server-side programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, online learning websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-driven website can serve unique web content to each visitor under the same URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any online browser, you won’t need any programming know-how or previous experience in order to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are built using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to confirm whether or not the server on which your site is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

With our cloud web hosting, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be active for your hosting account, since we offer support for different versions. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and each time a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up throughout the years. In stark contrast to many other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to fill safety gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a site created with a previous version of PHP and you’ve donated time and energy towards developing it, fixing security breaches and posting page content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosting companies these days offer support only for the latest version of PHP and drop the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which implies that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom settings or misspending time and efforts attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. The version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
