PHP is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It is exceptionally popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive sites like community portals, e-commerce portals or online teaching websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web-based applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Besides, there’re a myriad of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re a handful of PHP versions, you should make sure that the same exact version that you used while creating your site is present on the web server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our current and potential customers from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, so in case you order a hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single mouse click from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, so you will not need any coding or technical capabilities. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new scripts without having to cope with any difficulties, so if you would like to change your current web hosting vendor and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have developed throughout the years will continue to run perfectly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting suppliers, but we strongly feel that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to create, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t inevitably mean security weaknesses. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also give you the possibility to set a different PHP version for each single site within your account.
