PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a famous multi-paradigm programming language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online learning sites or community websites. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP-driven site can serve unique web content to each user under the exact same URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through a single Control Panel tool, which you can log into from any browser, you won’t need to possess any computer programming skills or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only have to check whether or not the server where you host your site supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

In case you purchase a shared website hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate as to whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we offer support for several PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one mouse click and in case you want to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantly. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we trust that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will be using.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even in case your websites were created with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of web hosting providers, but we strongly reckon that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to develop, since older script language syntax doesn’t invariably equal security breaches. Quite the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to specify a different version for each website within your account.
