PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used server-side programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t very surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic site with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a particular website must be configured on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site doesn’t inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which one will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the web-based applications that you have built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every account, will enable you to set the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you would like to host multiple sites in one and the same account and they have various requirements in regards to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house built cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions all at the same time. In comparison, the majority of hosting providers typically support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
