PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular dynamic programming languages that are available out there. Any website or application built with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s little wonder that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive website with a multitude of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different web content to each visitor although the URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst creating a specific website must be available on the server so that the site can run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting plans, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, as several versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve set up through the years. Unlike many other web hosting suppliers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to prevent safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to specify a different PHP version for each website that you host in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our unfaltering conviction that several years spent developing a site should not go down the drain, which means that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it is old or new. In contrast with a lot of hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to select a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root folder. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the whole account and the change will be applied in only a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never confront any website incompatibility challenges.
