PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages out there. Any site or web-based application created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not unusual that there are actually 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 permits you to create a dynamic serving site with many different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will display different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will not change. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a specific website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will run flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of mods to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with one click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you want to run both newer and older 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 Hosting
We’re of the opinion that years spent creating a website shouldn’t be wasted, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, new or old. In stark contrast to lots of providers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our advanced cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to enable the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to set a different version for each website. This can be done merely by adding an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the change will be applied in just several minutes. With our hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever face any website incompatibility predicaments.
