PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages out there. Any site or web application built with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it’s not that unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to build a dynamic site with a multitude of options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your sites will run without any problems even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not invariably imply a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of mods to its code. This is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can decide which one will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with a single click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect right away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the web-based applications that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account, will permit you to enable the needed version with just one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. If you want to host multiple sites in a single account and they have distinct requirements with regard to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our in-house developed cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions all at once. By comparison, most web hosting vendors typically offer one, maximum two versions.
