PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous imperative programming languages available out there. Any site or web app built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it is by no means surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic site with many different options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will not change. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a certain website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to run properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

If you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to speculate as to whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer multiple PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one click of the mouse and in case you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied instantly. Thus, years of work on sites built with an older version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the needed version with one single click. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you wish to host multiple sites under the same account and they have diverse requirements with reference to the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP all at once. In contrast, most hosting companies normally support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
