PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular imperative programming languages available out there. Any website or web application created using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t really a big surprise that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic serving website with heaps of different features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve unique content to each user even though the URL will remain unchanged. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a specific website must be present on the server so that the site can run properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you get a cloud hosting package from our company, you will never have to think about whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click of the mouse and if you need to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own websites.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service support multiple PHP versions, so you’ll be able to run all the web applications that you’ve built throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the version that you need with just one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you’d like to host multiple websites under the very same account and they have special requirements with respect to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to set a different PHP version for each of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions at once. In comparison, the vast majority of web hosting companies typically offer one, sometimes two versions.
