PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with a huge number of features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show unique web content to each visitor even though the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a specific website must be present on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
In case you buy a shared web hosting plan from us, you won’t ever have to worry about whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since different versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click and if you would like to change the current version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. In this way, many years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we believe that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
It’s our strong belief that years spent creating a website shouldn’t go down the drain, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. Unlike a lot of hosting companies, we support several different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to activate the version that you need from your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done simply by placing an .htaccess file inside the given site’s root folder. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the entire account and the new settings will be applied in less than a few minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever confront any website incompatibility difficulties.
