PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source web programming languages out there. Any site or web-based application created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s little surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to set up an interactive website with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will serve unique web content to each user even though the page URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be installed on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.

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

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, since we offer support for several versions. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years. In stark contrast to lots of other hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its code to patch security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared hosting account.

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

Our semi-dedicated plans support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to use all the web apps that you have built through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to enable the version that you need with just one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you’d like to host multiple sites under one single account and they have diverse requirements with regards to the web hosting platform, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version is selected for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our custom-developed cloud platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions all at once. By comparison, most hosting suppliers normally offer one, sometimes two versions.
