PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous curly-brace programming languages that are available out there. Any website or app written in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s not at all surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic site with an abundance of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will display different web content to each visitor even though the URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and future clients from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which suggests that in case you get a cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account in general, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one click from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to have any technical or programming knowledge. You’ll be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP scripts without any hassles, so if you want to change your present web hosting supplier and move over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have created over the years will continue to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the web-based apps that you’ve set up through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every account, will permit you to enable the needed version with only one mouse click. You can select between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you would like to host multiple sites in one single account and they have diverse requirements in regard to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable owing to our in-house created cloud platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP concurrently. By contrast, the great majority of web hosts usually offer one, maximum two versions.
