PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular scripting languages out there. Any site or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s little wonder that there are 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 thanks to the fact that it enables you to create a responsive site with heaps of different features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while setting up a certain website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting
Our website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your sites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old website does not necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of code mods. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility 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’re unfaltering in our belief that years spent building a website should not go down the tube, so in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, no matter if it’s old or new. In stark contrast with lots of web hosting companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to set a different version for each individual website. The latter can be accomplished simply by putting an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the version both for a single site and for the entire account and the update will take effect in no more than a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never run into any site incompatibility obstacles.
