PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages out there. Any site or web app built with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t really a surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic site with heaps of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve different content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a given website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work properly.

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

In case you get a shared hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever need to ponder on whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect straight away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we feel that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will use.

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

We are of the firm opinion that several years spent creating a website shouldn’t be lost, so if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it’s old or new. In stark contrast to lots of web hosting suppliers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the opportunity to specify a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by uploading an .htaccess file to 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 take effect in only a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever confront any website incompatibility complications.
