PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web app created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s by no means unusual that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it enables you to build a dynamic serving website with an immense number of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while setting up a particular website must be set up on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

We have decided not to prevent our current and potential customers from picking the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which means that in case you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be done with only one click through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, which is why you won’t need to have any programming or technical expertise. You will be able to run websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to overcome any impediments, so if you would like to swap your current web hosting supplier and move over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you’ve created over the years will continue to run impeccably.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a website created in an older version of PHP and you’ve devoted time and energy towards setting it up, repairing security holes and adding web content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of web hosting vendors today support only the most recently launched version of PHP and remove the previous ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom tweaks or misspending time and efforts attempting to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version for each individual site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess file.
