If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a server and which work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated by default on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them whatever the Linux shared web hosting package that you select when you join us. This will allow you to create multimedia sites without having to worry about any sort of technical restrictions on our end. In case you have a portfolio website, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar website that engages your guests in some way, you're able to provide them with a number of editing options for the photographs they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, that provides you with quite a lot of opportunities as to what content you're able to offer on the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server package that we offer comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, which means that you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you employ has in-built options to work with pictures and charts, it'll work perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've acquired it online, if it's a part of the script library which you'll be able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. With our services, you're able to build multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
