PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous coding languages out there. Any site or web app created using PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with numerous different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each user even though the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

Our cloud website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run without any problem no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old site does not always equal a vulnerable one as you may have performed lots of source code modifications. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated plans support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the web apps that you’ve set up throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to activate the required version with only one mouse click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you would like to host multiple websites under one account and they have distinctive requirements in respect to the web hosting platform, you will be able to choose a different PHP version for each one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account as a whole. This is achievable owing to our custom-built cloud platform, which allows us to run different PHP versions concurrently. By contrast, the vast majority of web hosts normally support one, sometimes two versions.
