PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous web development languages out there. Any website or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it comes as no surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic site with lots of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will show different web content to each visitor although the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a given website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

In case you get a cloud website hosting package from us, you will never have to ponder on whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since several versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will be applied straight away. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we deem that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own websites.

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

We’re steadfast in our conviction that several years spent setting up a site shouldn’t be wasted, which means that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In stark contrast with lots of web hosting providers, we support several different versions of PHP on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to pick a different version for each website. This can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file within 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 less than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you will never bump into any website compatibility complications.
