PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components like Internet forums, online learning websites or community sites. In contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP site can display different web content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via a Control Panel, which you can log in to using any browser, you won’t need to possess any web design skills or practical experience to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are PHP-based is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only verify whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our present and potential clients from selecting what PHP version their sites will be using, which means that in case you buy a shared website hosting package from our company, you’ll 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 domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with just one single click through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you will not need to have any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to run websites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without any hassles, so if you decide to leave your present web hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years will continue to run flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a website built with a previous version of PHP and you have invested time and efforts in setting it up, fixing safety holes and entering content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting companies nowadays support only the newest PHP version and abandon the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, so you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any customizations or misspending time attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole account, but you will also be able to pick a different version for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
