PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used open-source scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web app built using PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that unusual that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to develop a responsive site with a ton of different features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will serve different content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be installed on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting

Our shared website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your websites will run correctly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website does not inevitably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied momentarily. In case you want to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.

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

We are of the unswerving opinion that several years spent setting up a site shouldn’t go down the drain, which suggests that if you purchase a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to run any script, regardless of whether it’s old or new. Unlike a lot of hosting providers, we support a number of different PHP versions on our revolutionary cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only be able to enable the required version through your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the possibility to select a different PHP version for each website. The latter can be done merely by uploading an .htaccess file to the root directory of the given site. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the account itself and the change will take effect in less than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be sure that you won’t ever run into any website incompatibility predicaments.
