PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular server-side scripting language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive elements such as message boards, online learning websites or community websites. In contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each user under the same page URL. As PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can sign on to from any browser, you will not need to possess any web development abilities or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are built using PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to confirm whether or not the server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

We have made the decision not to restrict our present and future clients from choosing what PHP version their sites will be using, which implies that if you buy a shared hosting package from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click from our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, so you will not have to possess any programming or technical skills. You’ll be able to host websites built with both new and old scripts without having to overcome any obstacles, so if you’d like to change your present web hosting provider and move over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have built throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a site built using an older version of PHP and you’ve donated time and efforts toward developing it, fixing security holes and inserting page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting companies nowadays support only the most recently published version of PHP and give up the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which suggests that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or misspending time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your account using an .htaccess file.
