PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a popular multiparadigm programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive elements like forums, online teaching portals or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can serve unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can access using any browser, you won’t need to have any web design expertise or past experience in order to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to verify that the web server on which your website is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will work properly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t automatically suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented a lot of source code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your hosting account. You can change the version with just one single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a website based on a previous PHP version and you have committed time and efforts to developing it, filling security gaps and posting page content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of web hosting providers today support only the latest version of PHP and remove the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the version that your own websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP 5 and PHP 4, so you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual tweaks or wasting time striving to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
