PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages out there. Any website or web application created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is hardly surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to build an interactive site with heaps of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve different content to each user even though the page URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
With our cloud web hosting, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be active for your shared hosting account, since we offer support for multiple versions. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built over the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other web hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it’s insecure since you may have carried out modifications to its source code to fill safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each site hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to run all the Internet apps that you have developed over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to set the required version with one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you wish to host multiple sites under a single account and they have different requirements towards the hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. By comparison, the vast majority of hosting vendors usually support one, sometimes two versions.
