PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app created in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is hardly a surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic site with a plethora of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a certain website must be set up on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

In case you get a shared hosting plan from us, you will never need to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we support different versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click of the mouse and if you would like to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your own sites.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to run all the Internet applications that you have set up through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with just one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you would like to host multiple websites in one single account and they have special requirements in relation to the hosting platform, you will be able to pick a different PHP version for each one of them no matter which version is selected for the account itself. That’s achievable owing to our custom-built cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple versions of PHP all at the same time. By comparison, the vast majority of web hosting vendors typically offer one, sometimes two versions.
