PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous general-purpose programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app based on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not unusual that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with tons of different options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will show unique web content to each user although the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while developing a given website must be configured on the server so that the site can run properly.

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

If you purchase a cloud hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate over whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as different PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we think that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the web-based apps that you’ve set up over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the required version with just one mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple websites under the exact same account and they have distinct requirements towards the hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account itself. That’s accomplishable thanks to our in-house created cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple PHP versions at the same time. By contrast, the majority of web hosting suppliers usually support one, occasionally two versions.
