PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not very unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop a dynamic site with a lot of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will serve different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst developing a certain website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work faultlessly.

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

With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as we offer support for different versions. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built through the years. Unlike many other companies, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have modified its code to repair safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your shared web hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you will be able to run all the web-based apps that you’ve developed throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with every single semi-dedicated server account, will permit you to set the needed version with one single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you want to host multiple websites in the exact same account and they have distinct requirements in reference to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different PHP version for each of them no matter which version has been enabled for the account itself. That’s achievable owing to our custom cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions all at the same time. In contrast, the vast majority of hosting companies usually support one, sometimes two versions.
