PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular general-purpose programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is little wonder that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with a huge number of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will serve different content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a certain website must be present on the web server in order for the site to run properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will run flawlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old site does not invariably imply an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with one single mouse click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our staunch belief that years spent developing a site shouldn’t go down the tubes, which suggests that if you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it is new or old. In contrast to a lot of companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only be able to activate the version that you need through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to pick a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by adding an .htaccess file to the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the entire account and the new settings will be applied in only a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never stumble upon any site compatibility predicaments.
