PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any website or web-based app created using PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s hardly surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic website with lots of features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show different content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst creating a specific website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.

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

In case you order a shared website hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to think about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are supported on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and in case you would like to change the current version, the new settings will be applied right away. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the tubes. 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 use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will use.

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

We’re steadfast in our belief that years spent creating a website should not be wasted, so if you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, no matter if it’s new or old. Unlike a lot of web hosts, we support several different PHP versions on our advanced cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to activate the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each website. The latter can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the new settings will take effect in less than several minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever run into any site incompatibility complications.
