PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used curly-brace programming languages out there. Any site or web application based on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is not really a big surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic site with loads of different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a given website must be available on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
If you get a hosting plan from us, you will never need to speculate on whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since several versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single click and if you would like to change the current version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. Thus, many years of work on websites created with an older version won’t go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will be using.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the Internet apps that you’ve set up throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the required version with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. If you’d like to host multiple sites under the very same account and they have diverse requirements in connection to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable owing to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run different PHP versions simultaneously. By comparison, most hosting companies typically support one, rarely two versions.
