PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used coding languages that are available out there. Any website or web application built with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that unusual that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique content to each visitor even though the URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be configured on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will run faultlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can select which one will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied straight away. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re of the unwavering opinion that several years spent building a website shouldn’t be lost, which implies that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is new or old. In contrast to a lot of web hosting suppliers, we support several different versions of PHP on our ground-breaking cloud web hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only have the ability to enable the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to choose a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the version either for a single site or for the entire account and the update will take effect in less than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never come across any site compatibility obstacles.
