PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used dynamic programming languages available out there. Any website or web app based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it’s little surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic serving site with heaps of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will run flawlessly no matter if your scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of source code mods. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and you can decide which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are of the strong opinion that years spent building a site shouldn’t go down the drain, which goes to say that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, new or old.
