PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic site with an abundance of different options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will serve different web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a certain website must be present on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
We have made a decision not to restrict our present and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version will be used by their websites, which implies that if you purchase a cloud web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or programming experience. You will be able to run websites built with both old and new scripts without having to cope with any hindrances, so if you wish to abandon your present provider and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed over the years will continue to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a site created using an earlier PHP version and you have dedicated time and effort to developing it, patching safety gaps and appending content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since most hosting companies nowadays offer support only for the most recently released PHP version and give up the earlier versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your very own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any customizations or misspending time and energy trying to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to set a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
