PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular open-source scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not really all that surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to create a responsive website with tons of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a given website must be present on the server in order for the site to work faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

If you order a cloud website hosting plan from our company, you will never have to speculate on whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we offer several versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single click and in case you wish to change the version, the update will take effect instantly. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It’s our unswerving belief that years spent creating a website shouldn’t be lost, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast to a lot of web hosts, we support several different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only be able to enable the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to set a different version for each individual website. This can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the new settings will take effect in just a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never chance upon any website compatibility complications.
