PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a famous scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, online learning sites or community websites. In comparison with static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can show unique web content to each user under the same page URL. Because PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can log onto using any online browser, you will not have to possess any computer programming knowledge or past experience to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the world are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting
If you order a web hosting package from us, you’ll never need to ponder whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we support several PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one click and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect momentarily. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just a click via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the latest PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the great majority of web hosting companies, but we strongly maintain that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a site that took years to develop, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t inevitably suggest safety flaws. Just the opposite, a properly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to select a different version of PHP for each website within your account.
