PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous multi-paradigm programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t really a huge surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with loads of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a particular 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 Web Hosting
In case you order a web hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to ponder if your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we support different versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click and in case you wish to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we are convinced that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own sites.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the applications that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the needed version with a single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you would like to host multiple sites under a single account and they have special requirements as to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP all at the same time. In stark comparison, most hosting companies normally support one, maximum two versions.
