PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a famous coding language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, e-learning sites or community websites. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can show unique web content to each user under the very same URL. As PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via one Control Panel, which you can log into using any browser, you will not need to possess any coding expertise or past experience to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will run properly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not always suggest an insecure one as you may have done a lot of mods to its code. That is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can select which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with a single mouse click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours at the same time.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running at the same time on our servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with just a click via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting vendors, but we strongly consider that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to develop, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t always suggest safety holes. On the contrary, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also offer you the possibility to set a different version of PHP for each website within the account.
