PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used open-source programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t very unusual that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a responsive site with a multitude of options. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will serve different content to each user even though the URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

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

In case you get a cloud hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since different PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click of the mouse and if you want to change the current version, the update will take effect instantly. In this way, many years of work on sites built with an older PHP version won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we hold that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will use.

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

It’s our belief that several years spent creating a site should not be wasted, which implies that if you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it is old or new. Unlike lots of companies, we support several different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud web hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7.

This can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the whole account and the update will take effect in no more than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever bump into any website compatibility complications.
