PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular coding languages available out there. Any website or Internet app written in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving site with tons of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique content to each visitor despite the fact that the URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while developing a specific website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
We have made a decision not to restrict our present and future customers from choosing what PHP version will be used by their sites, which goes to say that if you purchase a shared website hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single click from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any programming or technical expertise. You’ll be able to host websites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any hindrances, so if you wish to swap your current hosting services provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have built throughout the years will continue to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a site built on an older PHP version and you have put time and energy into developing it, fixing safety holes and embedding web page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting suppliers nowadays offer support only for the most recently launched version of PHP and give up the previous versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to select the version that your very own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or frittering away time struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire account, but you will also be able to set a different version for each individual website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
