PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a famous web development language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive features such as message boards, e-teaching portals or community portals. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven website can serve different content to each visitor under the same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can sign into from any online browser, you won’t need any coding experience or prior experience whatsoever to run a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites worldwide are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only verify whether the server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while creating the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

With our Linux hosting services, you’ll be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your account, as multiple versions are available on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosts, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have edited its code to patch security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated hosting services support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to use all the Internet applications that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the version that you need with one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you want to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have diverse requirements relating to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our custom-created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP simultaneously. By contrast, the vast majority of hosting providers normally support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
