PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side scripting language, which can be used to create dynamic sites with interactive components like message boards, e-learning websites or social networks. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP site can show different web content to each user under the same page URL. As PHP-based web-based apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any Internet browser, you will not need to have any coding experience or previous experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only have to confirm whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Web Hosting

In case you order a shared web hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to wonder whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we support multiple versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click of the mouse and if you would like to change the version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we deem 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

It’s our opinion that years spent setting up a website shouldn’t be lost, which means that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, be it old or new.

You will not only be able to activate the required version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never stumble upon any site incompatibility complications.
