PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous object-oriented programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web application built with 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 hardly a surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with a huge number of options. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will display different content to each user although the URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a certain website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old site does not invariably imply an insecure one as you may have performed plenty of mods to its source code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied immediately. If you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were created with an older version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click via our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the majority of web hosts, but we believe that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took years to set up, since older script language syntax doesn’t always equal safety breaches. On the contrary, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also give you the possibility to choose a different version for each single website within the account.
