PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous server-side coding languages out there. Any site or web-based app created using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving site with many features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display different content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will not change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be available on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting
We’ve decided not to restrict our current and future clients from selecting the PHP version that their sites will be using, which goes to say that in case you order a web hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one mouse click from our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you will not need any programming or technical knowledge. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both old and new scripts without having to deal with any obstructions, so if you decide to abandon your current web host and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to run impeccably.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a website created in an older version of PHP and you’ve spent time and effort developing it, plugging security gaps and publishing page content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all web hosting suppliers today offer only the latest PHP version and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your very own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which goes to say that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual modifications or wasting time attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to pick a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
