PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular scripting languages available out there. Any site or application written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is barely surprising that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with plenty of different options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show different content to each visitor even though the URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to run properly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve reached a decision not to restrict our present and future clients from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, which means that in case you order a shared hosting plan from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or programming know-how. You will be able to run websites based on both old and new scripts without having to overcome any difficulties, so if you’d like to swap your current web hosting company and move over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to run properly.
