PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used object-oriented programming languages out there. Any site or Internet application created using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a big surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with a ton of different options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will display different content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a specific website must be configured on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your websites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website doesn’t automatically equal an insecure one as you may have done plenty of source code modifications. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with a single click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We are of the firm opinion that several years spent setting up a website shouldn’t be in vain, which means that if you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In stark contrast with many providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to activate the needed version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to choose a different PHP version for each website. This can be accomplished merely by uploading an .htaccess file to the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single website and for the entire account and the new settings will be applied in just a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever run into any website incompatibility complications.
