PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side scripting language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive components like forums, e-teaching websites or community sites. In stark contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can serve different web content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via a Control Panel tool, which you can sign onto using any web browser, you won’t need any computer programming knowledge or prior experience in order to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to make sure that the server on which your website is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your sites will work correctly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website does not inevitably suggest an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the web apps that you have set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the needed version with a single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you wish to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have different requirements as respects the hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions at the same time. In stark comparison, the vast majority of hosting suppliers typically offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
