PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive elements like message boards, e-teaching sites or social networking websites. In comparison with static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can show different content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Since PHP-based apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign in to using any Internet browser, you will not need any web design skills or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to confirm whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting plans, you will be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since different versions are installed on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years. In contrast with a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have done modifications to its code to repair safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you have built through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the needed version with only one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you want to host multiple websites under the same account and they have distinct requirements with regard to the hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different version for each one of them no matter which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable owing to our custom-created cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions at once. In stark comparison, the great majority of web hosting suppliers typically offer one, occasionally two versions.
