PHP is among the most widely used curly-bracket programming languages. It’s extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites such as community portals, e-commerce portals or e-learning portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself provides countless options for the web applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there are an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding skills. As there’re a couple of PHP versions, you ought to check if the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting
If you purchase a hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever need to ponder if your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and if you need to change the current version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own sites.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a site built with an older PHP version and you’ve dedicated time and effort to developing it, fixing safety gaps and inputting web content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of hosting companies these days support only the most recently launched PHP version and remove the earlier versions. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your own sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also be able to select a different PHP version for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
