PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular programming language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive components such as forums, online learning websites or social networking sites. In comparison to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can display unique content to each user under the same URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can sign in to from any online browser, you won’t need any web development abilities or previous experience to administer a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are PHP-based is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only verify if the server on which your site is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used while developing the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your sites will run faultlessly even if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of code mods. That is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can select which version will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Even if your websites were built with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the latest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting companies, but we strongly hold that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, as older script language syntax does not always equal security loopholes. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an inadequately maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each individual website within your account.
