PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source programming languages. It’s rather popular since it’s free software, which can be used to set up interactive websites like community websites, online shopping portals or e-teaching sites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides infinite possibilities for the applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Also, there are a ton of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding experience. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you must verify that the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is activated on the server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to prevent our current and future clients from selecting the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which means that if you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account itself, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one mouse click from our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared hosting accounts are administered, so you will not have to possess any technical or programming know-how. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new scripts without having to overcome any predicaments, so if you wish to abandon your present hosting supplier and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to work properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your websites were built with an older PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just one click of the mouse through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the most recent PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5, we also support 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the majority of hosting companies, but we reckon that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, as older programming language syntax does not inevitably mean safety breaches. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also offer you the possibility to pick a different version for each individual site within your account.
