PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it is free software, which you can use to build interactive websites such as community web portals, online shopping portals or school websites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself provides limitless options for the Internet apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Besides, there’re numerous PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding capabilities. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you need to verify whether the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is enabled on the web server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to restrict our present and prospective clients from choosing what PHP version their websites will use, so in case you buy a shared 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 hosting account as a whole, but also for each domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, which is why you will not need to have any coding or technical knowledge. You will be able to run sites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to overcome any problems, so if you decide to abandon your current hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve created through the years will continue to run correctly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you will be able to run all the apps that you’ve created throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to activate the version that you need with one click. You can choose between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in one and the very same account and they have special requirements toward the web hosting environment, you will be able to set a different version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. In stark contrast, the majority of web hosting companies usually offer one, rarely two versions.
