PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used server-side coding languages out there. Any site or app built using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s barely a surprise that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop an interactive site with numerous features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show different content to each visitor although the URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a given website must be installed on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

With our Linux cloud website hosting packages, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have created through the years. In stark contrast to many other companies, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have edited its source code to patch safety loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each single website that you host in your shared hosting account.

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

It is our unremitting conviction that years spent creating a website should not be in vain, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with many hosting companies, we support a number of different PHP versions on our innovative cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to specify a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the version either for a single site or for the whole account and the change will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never encounter any website compatibility obstacles.
