PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side programming languages out there. Any website or web-based application created in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is not at all unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to set up an interactive website with a lot of different features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show different content to each visitor even though the URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a given website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
In case you get a web hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate as to whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer multiple versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and if you wish to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantly. In this way, many years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re of the opinion that several years spent developing a website should not be in vain, so if you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is new or old. In contrast with lots of web hosts, we support a number of different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the required version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each single website. The latter can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the version either for a single website or for the account itself and the update will be applied in only a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never encounter any site incompatibility difficulties.
