PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used interpreted programming languages out there. Any website or app built with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it comes as no surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to set up a dynamic serving site with a vast number of options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will not change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a certain website must be set up on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

You’ll be able to run websites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any predicaments, so if you want to drop your present hosting company and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years will continue to work properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We believe that several years spent developing a website shouldn’t be lost, which implies that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. Unlike many web hosting providers, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Not only will you be able to enable the needed version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each single website.

With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never encounter any website compatibility difficulties.
