PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a popular open-source server-side scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, e-teaching websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered site can show different content to each user under the same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via one single Control Panel, which you can log in to using any browser, you won’t need to possess any coding know-how or previous experience to maintain a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites worldwide are built with PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to verify that the web server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used whilst setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud packages, you will be able to select which PHP version will be active for your account, since different versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In contrast to many other hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug safety holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a site created using an older version of PHP and you have donated time and effort to developing it, filling safety breaches and adding web content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since most web hosting vendors nowadays offer only the latest version of PHP and abandon the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the version that your very own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any customizations or wasting time trying to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole account, but you will also be able to specify a different version for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
