PHP is among the most commonly used web development languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which you can use to create interactive sites such as social networks, e-shops or online teaching sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. In addition, there’re loads of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding abilities. Considering the fact that there are different PHP versions, you ought to verify that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is present on the web server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

We have made a decision not to prevent our present and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which means that if you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single click through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, so you won’t need any coding or technical abilities. You’ll be able to host sites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to deal with any predicaments, so if you would like to drop your present web hosting vendor and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have built through the years will continue to work perfectly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a site built on an earlier PHP version and you’ve devoted time and energy towards developing it, patching safety breaches and inputting web content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since almost all web hosting vendors nowadays offer only the latest version of PHP and drop the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the version that your very own websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, so you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or misspending time and efforts struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole account, but you’ll also be able to pick a different version for each single website that you host in your account by using an .htaccess file.
