PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used multiparadigm programming languages out there. Any site or web-based application created with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not a surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to develop an interactive site with a ton of different features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will serve different content to each user despite the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to wonder whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are supported on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click and in case you wish to change the version, the update will be applied instantly. Thus, many years of work on sites built with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we believe that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We are unwavering in our conviction that several years spent building a site should not go down the tube, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. Unlike lots of hosting suppliers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to select a different version for each single website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the new settings will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never experience any site incompatibility predicaments.
