PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used open-source server-side coding languages available out there. Any site or web app written in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is not a huge surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic serving website with loads of options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve different content to each user although the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting plans
, you will be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your account, since multiple versions are installed on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is vulnerable since you may have done modifications to its source code to fix security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your web hosting account.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with one single click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. If you wish to host multiple sites under one and the very same account and they have diverse requirements towards the web hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom-created cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions simultaneously. In comparison, the vast majority of web hosting companies usually support one, in rare cases – two versions.
