PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any website or application created using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s little surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic serving website with numerous options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be installed on the server in order for the site to run properly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting

In case you purchase a hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to wonder whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we support several PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click of the mouse and in case you wish to change the current version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version won’t go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly maintain that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will use.

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

It’s our unvarying belief that several years spent creating a website should not be lost, which suggests that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, old or new. In stark contrast to 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 via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to pick a different version for each single website. The latter can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the root folder of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the whole account and the change will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever confront any website compatibility problems.
