PHP is amongst the most widely used programming languages. It is pretty popular as it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites like social networking websites, web shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language provides endless options for the Internet apps that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Also, there are numerous PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. Given the fact that there are several versions of PHP, you have to confirm if the very same version that you used whilst setting up your website is installed on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We’ve decided not to restrict our present and future customers from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, which goes to say that if you purchase a cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one mouse click from our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any technical or coding expertise. You’ll be able to run websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without any hassle, so if you want to drop your present hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have set up over the years will continue to work perfectly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a site created with a previous version of PHP and you have put time and effort towards setting it up, patching security breaches and posting web content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of hosting vendors today offer only the most recently introduced version of PHP and give up the previous versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5, which goes to say that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any customizations or misspending time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to set a different version for each single website that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
