PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which is used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion boards, online learning websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can show unique web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can sign on to from any browser, you won’t need to possess any web design know-how or previous experience to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only need to confirm that the server where you host your website supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the website.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even in case your sites were built with an older version of PHP, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the most recent PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of web hosting providers, but we strongly feel that you should not be forced to modify a website that took years to set up, as older script language syntax doesn’t necessarily mean safety loopholes. Just the opposite, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to set a different PHP version for each individual site within your account.
