PHP is among the most widely used object-oriented programming languages. It’s extremely popular since it is free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites such as community portals, online shopping portals or online teaching sites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides limitless possibilities for the Internet apps that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there’re numerous PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming capabilities. Since there are a few versions of PHP, you have to make sure that the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your site is activated on the server too.

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

In case you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll never have to wonder whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we support several versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click of the mouse and in case you’d like to change the current version, the update will take effect momentarily. In this way, years of work on sites created with an older version won’t go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will be using.

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

In case you have a site created with an older PHP version and you’ve spent time and efforts on developing it, filling safety breaches and embedding web content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of hosting companies today support only the most recently published version of PHP and give up the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to let you pick the version that your own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which suggests that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or wasting time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also have the ability to specify a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
