PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular general-purpose scripting language, which can be used to build dynamic websites with interactive components like discussion forums, school websites or social networking websites. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any coding capabilities or previous experience in order to administer a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the globe are built with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to check if the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
We have made a decision not to prevent our current and prospective clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which suggests that in case you purchase a hosting package from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need any technical or programming know-how. You will be able to run websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any impediments, so if you wish to swap your current hosting services provider and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve built through the years will continue to work impeccably.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the latest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of web hosts, but we strongly maintain that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to create, as older programming language syntax doesn’t invariably equal security flaws. On the contrary, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to specify a different version for each individual website within the account.
