PHP is one of the most commonly used scripting languages. It’s extremely popular because it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive sites like social networking websites, online shops or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides infinite options for the web-based applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. On top of that, there’re a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding know-how. Since there’re a handful of PHP versions, you have to verify if the same exact version that you used whilst creating your site is available on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you get a shared hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to wonder whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since several PHP versions are supported on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click of the mouse and if you would like to change the current version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, many years of work on sites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the drain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly think that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
We’re firm in our opinion that years spent creating a website shouldn’t go down the tubes, so in case you buy a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it’s new or old. In contrast to lots of web hosting suppliers, we support several different PHP versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. Not only will you be able to enable the needed version from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you will also have the option to specify a different PHP version for each website. This can be done simply by inserting an .htaccess file into the root directory of the given site. You can change the version not only for a single website, but also for the entire account and the change will take effect in no more than a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever run into any site incompatibility challenges.
