PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet app built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t a surprise that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic serving website with an immense number of options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different content to each user although the page URL will not change. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

If you buy a cloud web hosting package from us, you will never need to speculate as to whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click and in case you want to change the current version, the new settings will be applied immediately. In this way, many years of work on sites created with an older version will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we are convinced that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own sites.

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

Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which suggests that you will be able to run all the Internet applications that you have developed throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to set the required version with one single click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple sites in one account and they have distinctive requirements as concerns the hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. That’s possible thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run multiple versions of PHP at once. In contrast, the great majority of hosting vendors normally offer one, maximum two versions.
