PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages available out there. Any website or app built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it is not that unusual that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive website with an immense number of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show unique web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, so your websites will work without any problems even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site does not invariably equal a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of code mods. This is why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can select which one will be active for your account. The version can be changed with only one single click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It is our firm opinion that several years spent setting up a site shouldn’t go down the tube, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast with lots of web hosting providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only have the ability to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version either for a single website or for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never confront any website incompatibility complications.
