PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or web app created with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it’s barely surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to set up a dynamic serving website with many different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve unique content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while building a particular website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
We’ve reached a decision not to restrict our current and prospective customers from picking the PHP version that their sites will use, which implies that in case you order a cloud hosting package from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be done with just one click through our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared accounts are administered, so you will not need any technical or coding experience. You’ll be able to host websites built with both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any complications, so if you wish to abandon your present web hosting company and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you have created over the years will continue to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a site built with an older version of PHP and you’ve sacrificed time and effort in developing it, fixing safety holes and publishing page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of hosting companies today offer only the latest PHP version and drop the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated plans support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which implies that you will be able to use both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or frittering away time and energy attempting to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to pick a different version for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
