PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used object-oriented programming languages available out there. Any site or web app written in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is by no means unusual that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic site with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different content to each user even though the page URL will not change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will never have to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since multiple PHP versions are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single click of the mouse and if you need to change the version, the new settings will be applied right away. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older 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 suggests that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we deem that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re of the firm opinion that several years spent setting up a site should not go down the drain, so if you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s old or new. Unlike many providers, we support several different versions of PHP on our revolutionary cloud platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. You will not only have the ability to enable the needed version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to pick a different version for each single website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single site and for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in only a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever experience any site incompatibility challenges.
