PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used class-based programming languages available out there. Any website or app based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is not really a surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic serving site with plenty of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will show different content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a certain website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
If you purchase a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to ask yourself if your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several PHP versions are supported on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single click and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, many years of work on sites built with an older version won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It’s our unwavering opinion that years spent creating a site shouldn’t be wasted, which implies that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In contrast with a lot of hosting companies, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to select a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished merely by uploading an .htaccess file to the given site’s root folder. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the whole account and the update will be applied in less than a couple of minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever chance upon any website incompatibility complications.
