PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular general-purpose web programming languages out there. Any website or application written in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is barely surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to build an interactive website with many different features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will not change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a certain website must be present on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and potential clients from choosing what PHP version their websites will be using, which implies that if you purchase a cloud web hosting package from us, you will be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the account in general, but also for each domain that you host. This can be done with just one single mouse click from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or coding skills. You’ll be able to manage websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without any trouble, so if you want to abandon your current web hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to run all the web-based apps that you have built through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single account, will allow you to activate the required version with only one click. You can select between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you want to host multiple sites under one and the very same account and they have various requirements with reference to the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. In comparison, the vast majority of hosting vendors normally support one, maximum two versions.
