PHP is amongst the most commonly used dynamic programming languages. It’s highly popular because it’s free software, which can be used to build interactive sites such as community web portals, online stores or online teaching portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides limitless options for the Internet applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Furthermore, there are a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming skills. Since there’re several PHP versions, you must make sure that the very same version that you used while building your website is enabled on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
In case you purchase a shared website hosting package from our company, you will never need to ponder over whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we support different PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one mouse click and in case you need to change the current version, the new settings will be applied instantly. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we deem that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a site built on an older version of PHP and you have put time and energy into developing it, patching safety loopholes and publishing page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as almost all hosting companies these days support only the most recently released PHP version and give up the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you choose the exact version that your very own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any manual tweaks or wasting time and energy struggling to make your sites compatible with the hosting environment. The version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire account, but you’ll also be able to choose a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
