PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages available out there. Any site or web-based application built using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is by no means surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop a dynamic website with a plethora of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst creating a specific website must be set up on the server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which suggests that your sites will run properly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website doesn’t inevitably imply a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of source code mods. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your hosting account. You can change the version with only one mouse click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. In case you wish to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It’s our unswerving conviction that several years spent setting up a website should not go down the drain, which goes to say that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to use any script, be it old or new. In contrast to lots of providers, we support several different versions of PHP on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the version that you need from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the option to pick a different PHP version for each single website. This can be accomplished merely by putting an .htaccess file in the given site’s root directory. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the change will take effect in just several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you will never run into any site incompatibility challenges.
