PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used web programming languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet application built with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is little wonder that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a responsive site with many different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a particular website must be present on the web server so that the site can run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run faultlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old website does not inevitably imply a vulnerable one as you may have carried out plenty of mods to its code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to use all the web-based apps that you have developed over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the required version with a single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple websites under one and the same account and they have distinctive requirements in regard to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our in-house created cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several PHP versions all at the same time. In comparison, most hosting companies usually offer one, sometimes two versions.
