PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is scarcely surprising that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to develop an interactive website with plenty of different options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will serve different web content to each visitor although the page URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your websites will run properly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website doesn’t automatically imply a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of source code mods. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with one click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect immediately. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It is our conviction that several years spent developing a website shouldn’t be lost, which means that in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s new or old. Unlike lots of hosting providers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the needed version from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to set a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be accomplished merely by uploading an .htaccess file to the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the whole account and the change will be applied in only a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever bump into any site compatibility complications.
