PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, usually called PHP, is a famous web development language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like message boards, online teaching websites or social networking sites. In comparison to static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can show different content to each user under the very same URL. Since PHP-based web apps can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any web browser, you won’t need to have any web design experience or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are built using PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You must only confirm that the web server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our Linux cloud hosting packages, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created through the years. In contrast with lots of other hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fill safety holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual website that you host in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even in case your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Aside from the newest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by most web hosting suppliers, but we strongly feel that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, as older programming language syntax doesn’t automatically imply safety weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also offer you the opportunity to select a different version for each individual website within your account.
