PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular dynamic programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features like message boards, e-learning portals or community portals. In comparison to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven site can display different content to each user under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can log in to from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any programming know-how or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites worldwide are PHP-based is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to make certain that the server on which your site is hosted supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting
In case you purchase a shared website hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to question yourself about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as several PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click and in case you wish to change the version, the update will take effect instantaneously. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own sites.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It is our conviction that years spent setting up a website should not go down the tubes, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it is new or old. Unlike many web hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only be able to activate the needed version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to set a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version either for a single website or for the entire account and the change will be applied in less than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever confront any site incompatibility issues.
