PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet app created using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not very surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to set up a responsive site with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will display unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a specific website must be present on the server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your sites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We know that an old site doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out plenty of code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can pick which one will be active for your hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re staunch in our belief that years spent creating a site should not go down the tube, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, be it new or old. Unlike many web hosting suppliers, we support several different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. Not only will you be able to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to set a different version for each single website. The latter can be done simply by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root directory. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the entire account and the update will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever face any site compatibility impediments.
