PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application created using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s not at all unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with a myriad of different options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will display unique content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be configured on the server in order for the site to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and prospective customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will be using, which means that in case you purchase a website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need any technical or coding know-how. You’ll be able to manage websites built with both old and new scripts without any problems, so if you want to change your present web hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have created over the years will continue to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you’ll be able to use all the Internet applications that you’ve developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to activate the version that you need with one click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you would like to host multiple websites under the exact same account and they have special requirements respecting the web hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version is selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our in-house built cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP all at once. In contrast, the majority of web hosts normally support one, maximum two versions.
