PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous coding language, which can be used to set up dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online teaching websites or social networking sites. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can serve unique content to each visitor under the very same URL. Because PHP-based Internet applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log on to from any Internet browser, you won’t need any web design expertise or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are built using PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only need to confirm if the web server where you host your site supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

With our shared website hosting, you will be able to select which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, as we support multiple versions. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have set up through the years. In contrast to many other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug safety breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your shared hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a website created in an older PHP version and you’ve donated time and energy into setting it up, plugging security breaches and embedding web content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all web hosts today offer support only for the most recently unveiled PHP version and give up the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, which means that you will be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any customizations or misspending time and efforts striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also be able to select a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess config file.
