PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements such as bulletin boards, online learning portals or social networks. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can serve different content to each visitor under the same URL. As PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any online browser, you will not need any computer programming know-how or past experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the globe are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to confirm if the server on which your website is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used while setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

In case you purchase a web hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate on whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one click of the mouse and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. Thus, years of work on sites built with an older PHP version will not go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

It is our unfaltering belief that several years spent creating a website should not go down the drain, which implies that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it’s new or old.

You will not only have the ability to activate the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to choose a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version either for a single website or for the entire account and the update will take effect in just several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never have any site compatibility complications.
