PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used reflective programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is not really a big surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with a ton of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show unique web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be present on the web server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your hosting account, as we support different versions. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. In contrast to many other hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have edited its source code to repair security gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to run all the web-based applications that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each account, will enable you to activate the version that you need with only one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. If you want to host multiple sites under the exact same account and they have distinctive requirements with respect to the web hosting environment, you will be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions all at once. In contrast, the majority of hosting providers usually offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
