PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly referred to as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, online teaching portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can display different content to each user under the very same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign in to from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any web development expertise or practical experience in order to run a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are created using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only confirm whether or not the server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

We have reached a decision not to prevent our present and prospective clients from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which implies that if you buy a hosting plan from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t have to possess any technical or programming experience. You will be able to manage websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without any problem, so if you decide to change your present web hosting company and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have built through the years will continue to work faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a site built on an older version of PHP and you’ve sacrificed time and energy in developing it, plugging security loopholes and entering page content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosts these days support only the most recently released PHP version and abandon the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, which means that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or frittering away time attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. You can change the version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
