PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular general-purpose server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or app built with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not unusual that there are a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create an interactive site with a large number of features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will serve different content to each visitor despite the fact that the page URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while setting up a specific website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run properly.

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

Our shared website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run faultlessly no matter if your scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t necessarily mean an insecure one as you may have performed lots of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.

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

We’re of the staunch opinion that several years spent building a website should not go down the tube, which means that in case you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In stark contrast to a lot of web hosting providers, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you have the ability to activate the version that you need through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to specify a different PHP version for each individual website. The latter can be done merely by placing an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the version either for a single site or for the entire account and the change will take effect in only a few minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you will never come across any website incompatibility predicaments.
