PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used web programming languages out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic serving site with a myriad of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will serve unique content to each user although the URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a certain website must be set up on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to worry about whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as multiple PHP versions are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single mouse click and in case you’d like to change the version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we strongly feel that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you have developed over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each account, will enable you to activate the needed version with a single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you want to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have various requirements in connection to the web hosting platform, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP at once. In contrast, the vast majority of web hosting vendors normally support one, sometimes two versions.
