PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly called PHP, is a popular programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features like Internet forums, e-teaching sites or social networks. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP-powered website can display different content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Because PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign into from any Internet browser, you won’t need to have any coding experience or practical experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-powered website. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are based on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only confirm whether or not the web server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same PHP version as the one that you used whilst creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

With our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years. In contrast with many other hosting providers, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to prevent safety holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Even in case your sites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting companies, but we think that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, as older script language syntax doesn’t automatically suggest safety breaches. Just the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the opportunity to pick a different version for each single site within the account.
