PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous dynamic programming languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based app created in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it’s small wonder that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with loads of different options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display different web content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a particular website must be activated on the server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared hosting packages, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created over the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is vulnerable since you may have tweaked its code to patch security loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each site that you host in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It’s our unremitting conviction that years spent creating a website should not go down the tube, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. In contrast with lots of hosting providers, we support several different PHP versions on our advanced cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to select a different PHP version for each individual website. This can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the account itself and the update will take effect in just a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never bump into any site compatibility problems.
