PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side programming languages out there. Any website or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is not all that unusual that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to set up a responsive website with tons of different features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a certain website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old site does not inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have done plenty of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied right away. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re of the unswerving opinion that years spent setting up a website should not be lost, which means that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with a lot of hosting companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to choose a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the entire account and the change will take effect in just a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never experience any website incompatibility problems.
