PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used imperative programming languages available out there. Any site or web-based app based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it’s not at all unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving site with a plethora of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show different content to each user despite the fact that the URL will not change. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a certain website must be installed on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting

With our Linux hosting service, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed over the years. In stark contrast to lots of other web hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have done modifications to its code to repair security holes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different PHP version for each site that you host in your shared web hosting account.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It’s our steadfast conviction that years spent setting up a website shouldn’t be wasted, so in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. In contrast with lots of hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our innovative cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to pick a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be accomplished simply by uploading an .htaccess file to the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the change will be applied in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never confront any site incompatibility difficulties.
