PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive components like Internet forums, e-teaching portals or social networks. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP-powered website can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based Internet apps can be managed through one single Control Panel, which you can sign on to from any online browser, you will not need to possess any programming skills or previous experience to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the globe are based on PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to check whether or not the web server where you host your site supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst developing the website.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
If you order a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll never need to speculate if your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer different PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single mouse click and in case you wish to change the current version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your websites were built with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just one click via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by most hosting companies, but we hold that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took years to build, since older script language syntax doesn’t always mean safety gaps. On the contrary, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to specify a different version for each site within the account.
