PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side coding language, which can be used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, e-learning portals or community portals. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can show different content to each user under the exact same URL. Because PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign in to from any online browser, you won’t need any programming expertise or practical experience to administer a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites all over the globe are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only confirm whether or not the web server on which your website is hosted 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 Hosting
With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, since several versions are supported on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve set up over the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have edited its source code to fix safety holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your account.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your sites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just a click via our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we deem that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a website that took years to develop, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t always suggest safety flaws. On the contrary, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than an improperly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to pick a different version of PHP for each website within the account.
