PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used open-source programming languages out there. Any website or app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not a huge surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to create an interactive website with heaps of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a given website must be installed on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting plans, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have set up over the years. In contrast to lots of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to repair security gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It is our steadfast belief that years spent building a site should not go down the drain, which goes to say that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In contrast to many hosting vendors, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the option to pick a different PHP version for each website. This can be done simply by adding an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever experience any website incompatibility issues.
