PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous open-source server-side coding languages out there. Any website or Internet app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is hardly surprising that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with a multitude of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will serve different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a given website must be available on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.

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

With our website hosting, you will be able to pick which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, since different versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve set up over the years. In contrast with many other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is insecure as you may have tweaked its code to patch safety loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your web hosting account.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the web apps that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single account, will enable you to set the needed version with one click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple sites in the same account and they have diverse requirements with respect to the web hosting environment, you will be able to set a different PHP version for each of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s achievable owing to our custom-created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several PHP versions concurrently. By contrast, the majority of web hosting providers normally support one, maximum two versions.
