PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages. It’s very popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up responsive sites like social networking sites, online shopping portals or e-learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language provides countless options for the web-based apps that you set up, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. In addition, there’re loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming skills. Since there are a handful of PHP versions, you ought to confirm whether the exact same version that you used whilst setting up your site is present on the server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

We’ve decided not to prevent our current and prospective customers from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which means that if you buy a hosting package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account in general, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one click of the mouse from our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you will not need to have any technical or coding expertise. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new scripts without having to deal with any problems, so if you want to change your current web hosting supplier and move over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have set up through the years will continue to work faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even in case your sites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse via our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the newest PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been dropped by most web hosting suppliers, but we strongly hold that you should not be forced to modify a website that took several years to create, since older script language syntax does not always equal security breaches. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more secure than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each single site within your account.
