PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous open-source scripting languages available out there. Any site or app based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are actually several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build an interactive site with loads of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will display unique content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a given website must be installed on the server in order for the site to work faultlessly.

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

If you get a website hosting plan from us, you won’t ever have to ponder over whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as different PHP versions are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click and if you need to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we trust that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to run all the web-based apps that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every account, will permit you to activate the required version with a single mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you wish to host multiple websites in the very same account and they have different requirements regarding the web hosting platform, you will be able to set a different version for each of them no matter which version is enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable thanks to our custom-developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions at once. By contrast, most web hosts usually support one, sometimes two versions.
