PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly called PHP, is a popular general-purpose web programming language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, e-teaching portals or social networking websites. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can display different content to each visitor under the exact same URL. Since PHP-based web applications can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any online browser, you will not need any web design experience or past experience to maintain a PHP-driven website. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the globe are PHP-based is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only ought to make sure that the server on which your website is hosted supports the same exact PHP version as the one that you used whilst building the site.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Even in case your websites were built with an older PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than a click of the mouse via our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 5.5 and PHP 5.4, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by most hosting providers, but we strongly feel that you should not be forced to modify a site that took years to create, since older script language syntax doesn’t invariably equal security holes. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a badly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to select a different version of PHP for each single website within your account.
