PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose server-side programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app written in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is by no means unusual that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build an interactive website with heaps of different features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will serve different web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a certain website must be available on the server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting service, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since several versions are available on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have modified its code to repair safety gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our unwavering belief that several years spent building a site should not go down the tube, which implies that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, new or old. In contrast with lots of companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the needed version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to pick a different version for each website. This can be accomplished merely by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the version both for a single website and for the entire account and the change will take effect in less than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never stumble upon any website compatibility complications.
