PHP is amongst the most widely used reflective programming languages. It’s pretty popular because it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites such as community sites, shopping portals or online teaching portals rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language offers innumerable possibilities for the web-based applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Additionally, there’re a lot of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming expertise. Since there are a few PHP versions, you must ensure that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is activated on the web server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. In stark contrast with lots of other providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have done modifications to its source code to fill security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your shared hosting account.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to activate the version that you need with a single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. If you would like to host multiple sites in the exact same account and they have diverse requirements relative to the hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different version for each of them no matter which version is selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable thanks to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP simultaneously. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting vendors normally support one, in rare cases – two versions.
