PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used interpreted programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it is not unusual that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with many options. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will display unique content to each user although the URL will not change. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a given 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 Cloud Website Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud website hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to speculate as to whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as several PHP versions are activated on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single mouse click and if you wish to change the current version, the update will be applied immediately. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will use.

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

Our semi-dedicated hosting support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run all the Internet apps that you have built over the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to set the required version with one single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you want to host multiple websites under one and the very same account and they have various requirements associated with the hosting environment, you’ll be able to pick a different version for each and every one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our custom-built cloud web hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. By comparison, the majority of web hosting suppliers usually support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
