PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It is very popular as it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive sites such as community web portals, shopping portals or e-learning portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable options for the apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Additionally, there are a myriad of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding knowledge. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you should verify whether the same version that you used while setting up your site is available on the web server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to run all the applications that you have set up through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every single semi-dedicated account, will enable you to activate the needed version with just one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. In case you wish to host multiple websites in one account and they have distinctive requirements as regards the hosting environment, you’ll be able to set a different version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. This is possible owing to our custom-created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP at the same time. By comparison, most hosting suppliers typically support one, maximum two versions.
