PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous general-purpose scripting languages available out there. Any website or application created using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving site with many different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will show different web content to each user even though the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our Linux shared web hosting, you’ll be able to select which version of PHP will be enabled for your account, since we support several versions. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up through the years. In stark contrast with lots of other companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its code to plug security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you will be able to use all the applications that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to set the required version with only one click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you’d like to host multiple sites under the very same account and they have distinct requirements respecting the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions simultaneously. In comparison, most web hosting providers typically offer one, sometimes two versions.
