PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used object-oriented programming languages out there. Any site or web-based application based on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t unusual that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to set up a dynamic serving website with loads of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will show different content to each user although the URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a certain website must be installed on the server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your websites will work faultlessly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t always imply a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of code mods. This is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can decide which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with one single click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re of the firm opinion that years spent developing a website shouldn’t go down the tubes, so in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. In contrast to many hosting providers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only have the ability to activate the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to set a different version for each single website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the account itself and the change will take effect in only a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never stumble upon any website compatibility predicaments.
