PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular open-source web programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application built with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is barely a surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to create an interactive website with a plethora of options. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will display different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst developing a given website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
If you get a cloud hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to speculate whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since several PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click and if you wish to change the version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older version won’t go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated hosting plans support multiple versions of PHP, so you’ll be able to use all the web-based apps that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every semi-dedicated account, will allow you to set the needed version with one single click. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple websites in the very same account and they have diverse requirements relative to the hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each one of them regardless of which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable owing to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP all at once. By comparison, most hosting vendors usually offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
