PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous interpreted programming languages available out there. Any site or web-based application built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is hardly a surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to develop an interactive site with a large number of options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve unique content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a given website must be configured on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud web hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to wonder if your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as different versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one mouse click and if you would like to change the version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the tubes. Our 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 marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we deem that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will use.
