PHP Web Hosting
Not every web host offers the same services. Choosing the right web host at the right time can save you a lot of trouble. When in need of PHP hosting the choice is yours, but buyer beware. Does your current web host offers PHP 4 and PHP 5? PHP is slowly but surely considered “aged”. Sure, there are tons of scripts and software packages that still rely on PHP4, but PHP5 is gaining a lot of ground. If you are installing scripts and software that run on PHP 4 and PHP 5, you should already choose the PHP 5 platform as the web hosting of choice. Why? Think long-term. Statistics show that customers who are satisfied with their web hosting will stay a minimum of 2.56 years with that web host.
The Web Hosting Resource Kit is a resource for web hosts AND web hosting customers. This puts us into a unique position where we have access to information not easily available to everyone. We spent some time reviewing which web hosts support both PHP 4 and 5 and came up with the following list for you. All hosts listed offer 24/7 support and have very competitive prices.
LunarPages offers cheap PHP Web Hosting
Hostgator offers cheap PHP Web Hosting
Bluehost offers cheap PHP Web Hosting
All the web hosts we have listed have either a simple to use graphical chooser in the hosting online control panel to pick which version of PHP you want to work with or you can configure it by using your .htaccess file. You can even use both version of PHP at the same time if you want! All web hosts have extensive tutorials on how to do it and if all fails you can contact tech support for assistance.
