PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous object-oriented programming languages out there. Any website or app based on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t really that unusual that there are a couple of million web 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 permits you to create a responsive website with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will serve different web content to each user although the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a given website must be activated on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting

In case you get a shared web hosting package from our company, you will never need to wonder if your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click of the mouse and if you would like to change the current version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we believe that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will be using.

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

We are of the steadfast opinion that years spent building a site should not go down the tube, so if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast with many companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to enable the needed version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to pick a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the whole account and the change will be applied in less than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never run into any site compatibility obstacles.
