PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components such as discussion forums, online learning websites or community websites. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP website can show unique content to each user under the same exact URL. Since PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can log onto using any web browser, you won’t need any web design know-how or prior experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to ensure that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used whilst creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared hosting packages, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, as several versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have set up throughout the years. In contrast with many other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have done modifications to its code to patch security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to run all the applications that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated server account, will allow 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 want to host multiple sites under one account and they have various requirements as respects the web hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been enabled for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-created cloud platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP all at once. In stark comparison, most web hosting vendors typically offer one, in very rare cases – two versions.
