PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous class-based programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet application based on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s hardly surprising that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to set up an interactive website with many different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a given website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

Our cloud website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which means that your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click within your Hepsia 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 domains at the same time.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

It’s our firm opinion that years spent building a website should not go down the tubes, which suggests that if you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, be it old or new. In stark contrast to many hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our leading-edge cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by inserting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root directory. You can change the version either for a single site or for the entire account and the change will take effect in only several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never chance upon any website compatibility impediments.
