PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source web programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web application created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with an abundance of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a specific website must be present on the web server so that the site can run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
With our website hosting, you’ll be able to choose which version of PHP will be active for your account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up throughout the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other companies, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable as you may have tweaked its code to patch safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the needed version with a single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you would like to host multiple sites in one account and they have diverse requirements in reference to the web hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable owing to our custom cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions at the same time. In comparison, most hosting companies typically support one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
