PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used curly-bracket programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web application built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is not really a huge surprise that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic site with loads of different options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve unique web content to each user even though the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a particular website must be configured on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our Linux shared web hosting packages
, you’ll be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your shared account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years. In stark contrast with lots of other web hosts, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to patch safety holes. 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 web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated packages
support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to use all the web-based apps that you’ve built over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will permit you to set the version that you need with a single click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you want to host multiple sites under one and the very same account and they have diverse requirements referring to the hosting environment, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account itself. That’s possible owing to our custom-created cloud platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP concurrently. In comparison, the great majority of web hosting providers usually offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
