PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it’s little wonder that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with a huge number of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique content to each visitor even though the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our current and potential customers from selecting what PHP version their sites will be using, which implies that in case you get a shared hosting plan from us, you will be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the account in general, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, so you will not have to possess any coding or technical abilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any predicaments, so if you decide to swap your present web hosting vendor and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed over the years will continue to run perfectly.

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 run all the apps that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to set the required version with one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have various requirements connected with the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account itself. That’s accomplishable owing to our custom-created cloud platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP at the same time. In contrast, the vast majority of web hosts typically support one, occasionally two versions.
