PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular open-source scripting language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion forums, school websites or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP website can serve different web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Since PHP-based Internet apps can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any Internet browser, you will not need to have any programming skills or prior experience in order to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are created with PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to check if the web server where you host your website supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst creating the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have performed a lot of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with one single mouse click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantaneously. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site built with an earlier PHP version and you’ve put in time and energy into developing it, plugging safety holes and entering content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting companies nowadays offer only the newest version of PHP and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, so you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or wasting time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to choose a different version for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
