PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages out there. Any website or app built on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not very surprising that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a responsive website with numerous 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 be the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a specific website must be present on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your web hosting account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have built through the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other hosting companies, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its source code to prevent safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your web hosting account.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are steadfast in our opinion that several years spent developing a website should not go down the tube, which means that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In contrast to a lot of companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the required version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to select a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file within the given site’s root directory. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the new settings will take effect in just several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever bump into any site incompatibility challenges.
