PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source server-side programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive features such as bulletin boards, online teaching sites or social networking sites. Unlike static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can display unique content to each user under the very same page URL. Because PHP-based apps can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any browser, you will not need to have any web development knowledge or previous experience whatsoever to run a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are built on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You should only verify whether or not the server where you host your website supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

If you order a shared hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to ponder over whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as several PHP versions are activated on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one click and in case you’d like to change the version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we believe that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will use.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every account, will permit you to activate the needed version with only one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you would like to host multiple sites in one single account and they have various requirements toward the 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 itself. That’s achievable owing to our in-house built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions at once. By contrast, most hosting suppliers normally offer one, in rare cases – two versions.
