PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous imperative programming languages out there. Any website or Internet application built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it is scarcely surprising that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to build an interactive website with a multitude of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a particular website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to ponder on whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer support for different PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you’d like to change the version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we feel that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own sites.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were created with an earlier version of PHP, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, since we support different versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be activated for your account with no more than one click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 8, we also offer 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting suppliers, but we are strongly convinced that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took years to build, since older scripting language syntax doesn’t always equal security vulnerabilities. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a negligently maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also provide you with the possibility to specify a different version for each individual site within the account.
