Wilmington, Delaware – (The Hosting News) – January 23, 2006 – Shared web hosting provider, Host Color, has integrated dynamic support for PHP 4 and PHP 5 scripting into its new NextColor hosting control panel. Customers can now choose their preferred version of PHP through a special section in the Host Color control panel control panel.
This new feature is particularly important for web developers. Although scripts written in the PHP web programming language should be reverse compatible to both versions 4 and 5, some programs have special requirements for each of them.
Host Color Executive Director, Vesselin Drangajov commented, ”We are a company that listens very carefully to what its customers say. That’s why after being approached by numerous customers asking specifically for PHP 4 or PHP 5 hosting, we decided to add this new feature in our control panel. Together with the improved SSH capability that we have added to our NextColor control panel, we feel that our hosting has some unique features and is a powerful medium for web developers.”
PHP version 5 was officially released in July 2004 and since then it has marked a major re-design of the language due to the e Zend Engine 2.0 processing core. Also this version of the language has far wider object-orientated capabilities than its predecessors. Web hosting companies are usually slow to adopt new technologies, due to the investment and the extra software work required to ensure compatibility between versions. Host Color’s chief software developer Venelin Mihaylov however, noted that Host Color was one of the first web hosting companies to begin offering PHP 5 more than a year ago. According to Mr. Mihaylov the new switching capability is an example of Host Color’s policy to produce software and service that empowers the end user.
Hos Color has recently announced it made available the popular PhpMyVisites to its customers. The web stats software is one of the pre-installed tools the company offers.
