PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which is used to build dynamic sites with interactive features like forums, school websites or social networking sites. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any browser, you will not have to possess any web development expertise or prior experience to run a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to confirm that the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will work properly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of modifications to its code. This is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can pick which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to run all the apps that you’ve set up throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can select between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in one account and they have special requirements in reference to the web hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. This is possible owing to our custom-developed cloud platform, which allows us to run different PHP versions at the same time. In stark comparison, the majority of hosting companies usually offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
