PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which can be used to develop dynamic sites with interactive features like bulletin boards, online learning sites or social networking sites. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can display different web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can access from any online browser, you won’t need to possess any computer programming abilities or past experience in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the world are built with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only need to confirm whether the server on which your site is hosted supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will work without any problems even if your scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not always mean an insecure one as you may have done a lot of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can choose which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to the most recent PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosting vendors, but we strongly consider that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to create, as older programming language syntax doesn’t inevitably equal safety vulnerabilities. Quite the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also give you the possibility to select a different PHP version for each site within the account.
