PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a popular open-source server-side programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements like message boards, online teaching sites or community sites. In contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP website can display different web content to each user under the same page URL. Since PHP-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any browser, you will not need to possess any web design skills or practical experience in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only confirm that the server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting

We have decided not to prevent our present and future customers from picking the PHP version that their websites will be using, which implies that if you get a website hosting package from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one single click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, so you won’t need to have any technical or programming experience. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any obstacles, so if you decide to drop your current web hosting company and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve set up over the years will continue to run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a website built using a previous PHP version and you’ve committed time and efforts to setting it up, plugging security breaches and adding web content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosts nowadays offer only the most recently unveiled version of PHP and remove the earlier ones. We, however, have decided to let you pick the version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, which suggests that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or wasting time and effort struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to select a different version for each individual website that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
