PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous curly-bracket programming languages that are available out there. Any website or application built on PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to create a responsive website with heaps of options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show different content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst creating a specific website must be installed on the server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
We have made a decision not to restrict our present and future clients from selecting what PHP version will be used by their sites, which means that if you purchase a web hosting package from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be done with only one single click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, so you will not need to have any technical or programming abilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without trouble, so if you would like to swap your current hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have built over the years will continue to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your websites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running simultaneously on our servers and each one of them can be activated for your account with just one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia Control Panel. Besides the latest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the great majority of web hosting vendors, but we strongly trust that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t always equal safety loopholes. On the contrary, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more secure than a poorly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also provide you with the opportunity to select a different PHP version for each single website within the account.
