PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically referred to as PHP, is a popular reflective programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive components such as discussion boards, online learning sites or community web portals. In comparison to static HTML sites, a PHP website can display unique content to each user under the exact same page URL. Because PHP-based web apps can be managed through one single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any browser, you won’t have to possess any computer programming skills or past experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only make certain that the server where you host your website supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

We have made the decision not to restrict our current and prospective clients from selecting the PHP version that their websites will use, which suggests that in case you get a cloud web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t need to possess any technical or coding experience. You’ll be able to manage sites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you wish to swap your current web hosting company and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work properly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

Even if your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click via our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also support 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 consider that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to build, since older programming language syntax doesn’t automatically imply safety breaches. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the possibility to pick a different version for each individual website within your account.
