PHP is amongst the most widely used server-side scripting languages. It’s pretty popular as it is free software, which you can use to create responsive sites like community sites, shopping portals or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language provides incalculable possibilities for the web-based apps that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites. Besides, there are a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you have to confirm if the exact same version that you used whilst creating your website is present on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
In case you get a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will never need to speculate on whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as different PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one mouse click and in case you need to change the current version, the update will be applied straight away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we feel that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting service support multiple versions of PHP, which implies that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you have set up through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to enable the needed version with one single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you want to host multiple websites under a single account and they have special requirements with reference to the hosting platform, you’ll be able to set a different version for each one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable thanks to our custom-built cloud platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions simultaneously. By contrast, the great majority of web hosting vendors usually support one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
