PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive features such as Internet forums, e-learning sites or community sites. In contrast to static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can sign onto from any Internet browser, you won’t need any coding skills or prior experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are PHP-based is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to verify whether the web server where you host your site supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting
In case you purchase a shared web hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to ponder whether your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since several PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one click and in case you want to change the version, the update will take effect instantly. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we reckon that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a website built using a previous version of PHP and you have committed time and effort into developing it, fixing security breaches and appending web page content, you will need a web hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of hosting companies these days offer only the newest version of PHP and give up the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to pick the exact version that your own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, so you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or wasting time and effort attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
