PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose server-side scripting languages out there. Any site or app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s small wonder that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a responsive site with an immense number of options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will serve unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while creating a particular website must be configured on the server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

In case you buy a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to think about whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single mouse click and if you want to change the version, the new settings will take effect immediately. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we feel that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will be using.

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

It is our staunch opinion that years spent creating a website should not go down the tube, which implies that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it’s old or new. Unlike many hosting providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to set a different version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root folder. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the change will take effect in no more than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you will never bump into any site incompatibility hindrances.
