PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also referred to as PHP, is a popular open-source scripting language, which can be used to develop dynamic websites with interactive features such as discussion forums, online teaching sites or community sites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can show different content to each visitor under the very same URL. Since PHP-based web applications can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can log in to from any browser, you will not need to have any programming capabilities or practical experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are built on PHP is an indication of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only check whether or not the server where you host your website supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run without any problems even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not always mean a vulnerable one as you may have performed lots of mods to its source code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. If you want to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a site built using a previous PHP version and you have put in time and efforts into developing it, filling safety breaches and entering content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the great majority of hosting suppliers these days offer support only for the most recent version of PHP and drop the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to select the exact version that your own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated service support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without losing any manual settings or wasting time and effort striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you will also have the ability to pick a different version for each single site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess config file.
