PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages out there. Any website or application based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is by no means a surprise that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to develop a responsive website with a myriad of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a specific website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting
If you purchase a website hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to ponder over whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are installed on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one mouse click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect immediately. Thus, many years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly think that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.
