PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose programming language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online learning sites or social networks. In comparison with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can serve different content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can sign into using any browser, you will not need any coding experience or prior experience in order to run a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to verify if the server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

We’ve decided not to prevent our present and future customers from picking what PHP version their sites will use, which implies that in case you purchase a shared website hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one mouse click through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to have any technical or programming knowledge. You’ll be able to host websites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without hassle, so if you decide to change your current hosting vendor and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have created throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a site based on an earlier version of PHP and you’ve poured in time and efforts into developing it, repairing safety loopholes and embedding page content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting companies today support only the most recently launched PHP version and abandon the previous ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your very own websites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which suggests that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or wasting time and effort attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to select a different PHP version for each site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
