PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used web development languages available out there. Any website or Internet app created using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really all that surprising that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with a lot of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be activated on the server so that the site can run correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will run flawlessly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t inevitably equal an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of mods to its code. That is the reason why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can pick which one will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with one single click of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It is our unfaltering belief that years spent building a site shouldn’t be wasted, so in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, be it new or old. In stark contrast to many web hosting companies, we support a number of different PHP versions on our innovative cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only be able to enable the version that you need from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to choose a different version for each website. This can be done simply by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the change will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never face any website incompatibility complications.
