PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous general-purpose programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to set up an interactive site with a myriad of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a particular website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which means that your websites will work faultlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old site doesn’t always equal an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one click of the mouse within your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site built on an older version of PHP and you’ve devoted time and energy towards developing it, patching safety breaches and inputting web page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting providers today support only the latest version of PHP and drop the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the exact version that your sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated service support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or wasting time and effort struggling to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different version for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
