PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular general-purpose programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not really a big surprise that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to build an interactive website with plenty of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL won’t change. By contrast, HTML websites 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 given website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared packages, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, as different versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up over the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have performed modifications to its code to fix security gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We’re steadfast in our conviction that several years spent building a site should not go down the tubes, which goes to say that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, no matter if it’s new or old. In stark contrast with a lot of web hosts, we support several different versions of PHP on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the version that you need through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the version either for a single website or for the account itself and the change will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you will never encounter any website incompatibility predicaments.
