PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used scripting languages out there. Any site or Internet application created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is little wonder that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to build an interactive website with plenty of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be available on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We know that an old site doesn’t inevitably mean an insecure one as you may have performed a lot of mods to its source code. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which one will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect immediately. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated plans support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you’ll be able to run all the applications that you’ve set up through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each single account, will enable you to activate the needed version with one single mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple sites in one single account and they have various requirements towards the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. This is possible owing to our in-house built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP all at once. In stark comparison, the great majority of hosting vendors usually support one, in very rare cases – two versions.
