PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used interpreted programming languages out there. Any site or web application created in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is little surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive site with a multitude of features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a specific website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t necessarily suggest an insecure one as you may have implemented plenty of source code mods. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. If you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, so you will be able to use all the applications that you have set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to enable the needed version with only one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple sites in the exact same account and they have various requirements in regard to the hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s achievable owing to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP simultaneously. In stark comparison, the vast majority of web hosting companies usually offer one, occasionally two versions.
