PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application created with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s hardly a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving site with a lot of different options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a particular website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve made the decision not to restrict our current and future clients from selecting the PHP version that their websites will be using, which goes to say that in case you purchase a cloud 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 hosting account in general, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any programming or technical abilities. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both old and new scripts without a problem, so if you want to change your current hosting services provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have developed throughout the years will continue to work correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting service support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you will be able to run all the applications that you have set up over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the required version with a single click. You can pick between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. If you wish to host multiple sites in the same account and they have distinctive requirements regarding the hosting environment, you will be able to set a different version for each of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is possible owing to our in-house created cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. By contrast, most web hosting providers typically support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
