PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic serving website with tons of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL won’t change. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a given website must be enabled on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

If you purchase a shared website hosting plan from us, you will never have to ask yourself whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as we support different versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click of the mouse and in case you wish to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we consider that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own sites.

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

Our semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you have developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each semi-dedicated server account, will enable you to enable the required version with a single click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you’d like to host multiple sites under one and the very same account and they have distinct requirements respecting the hosting environment, you will be able to specify a different version for each and every one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions at the same time. By contrast, the majority of hosting companies usually offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
