PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it’s not that unusual that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to develop a responsive site with tons of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will display unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst creating a given website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
With our hosting, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, since we offer support for several versions. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have performed modifications to its code to plug security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with just one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you wish to host multiple sites under the exact same account and they have various requirements with reference to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions all at the same time. In comparison, the great majority of hosting companies typically support one, in rare cases – two versions.
