If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it must have the proper software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be installed on a server and which work with a large amount of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application you want, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

This will help you build multimedia websites without worrying about any technical limitations on our end.

In addition, you can convert text to images, which provides you with quite a lot of opportunities as to what content you'll be able to offer on the website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server package that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you change the PHP version that is in use by your account, which means that you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you use has in-built options to work with images and charts, it will function flawlessly on our servers, regardless if you've obtained it online, if it's part of the script library that you can access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. Using our services, you will be able to make multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
