PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages out there. Any site or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is little wonder that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic site with an enormous number of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be present on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting, you’ll be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared account, since several versions are available on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast with lots of other providers, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its code to repair security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each website hosted in your web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It is our unremitting conviction that several years spent creating a site should not go down the tube, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In contrast with a lot of hosting suppliers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to select a different version for each single website. The latter can be accomplished merely by placing an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the update will be applied in no more than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever bump into any site compatibility difficulties.
