PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any site or web-based app built with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it is by no means unusual that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic website with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different content to each user even though the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML 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 whilst building a particular website must be activated on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
If you order a shared website hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to speculate if your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single mouse click and if you want to change the version, the new settings will take effect instantaneously. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we trust that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our unfaltering conviction that several years spent setting up a site should not go down the tubes, which implies that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s new or old. In stark contrast to lots of web hosting providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the version that you need via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the option to specify a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done simply by putting an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version not only for a single website, but also for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in no more than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you will never stumble upon any website incompatibility obstacles.
