PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used web programming languages available out there. Any site or web-based app created using PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic website with plenty of different options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve unique content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will not change. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be enabled on the server so that the site can run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve made a conscious decision not to restrict our current and future clients from picking what PHP version will be used by their sites, which goes to say that in case you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one click of the mouse from our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t have to possess any technical or programming capabilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any problems, so if you decide to leave your current hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case your sites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support several versions running simultaneously on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than a click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Apart from the newest PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been dropped by the vast majority of hosting companies, but we strongly deem that you should not be forced to modify a website that took years to create, since older scripting language syntax does not necessarily mean safety vulnerabilities. On the contrary, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a wrongly maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual website within the account.
