PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source web programming language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, e-teaching sites or community websites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can display unique web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any browser, you won’t need to have any programming expertise or prior experience in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites around the world are created using PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to check whether the web server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

We have reached a decision not to prevent our current and potential customers from choosing what PHP version their websites will be using, which implies that in case you purchase a cloud website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account itself, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need to possess any coding or technical expertise. You will be able to host websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to overcome any predicaments, so if you would like to abandon your present hosting vendor and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work impeccably.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a site built using an earlier PHP version and you’ve devoted time and effort toward developing it, patching security gaps and entering page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting companies nowadays support only the most recent version of PHP and abandon the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your very own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which means that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or wasting time and energy attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the entire account, but you’ll also have the ability to set a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
