PHP is among the most widely used dynamic programming languages. It’s rather popular because it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites like community portals, online shops or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language itself offers innumerable possibilities for the web apps that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP sites. Moreover, there’re plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming expertise. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you ought to check whether the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is available on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

We’ve made the decision not to prevent our present and prospective clients from selecting the PHP version that their sites will be using, which suggests that in case you purchase a cloud web hosting package from us, you will be able to pick between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the account itself, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are managed, so you won’t need to possess any programming or technical abilities. You will be able to run websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to deal with any difficulties, so if you would like to abandon your current web host and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years will continue to work flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even if your sites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with just a click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting companies, but we maintain that you should not be forced to modify a website that took years to create, as older script language syntax doesn’t necessarily equal safety flaws. Quite the opposite, a well-maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual website within the account.
