PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used curly-brace programming languages out there. Any site or app created with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it’s not really a huge surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to set up a dynamic site with lots of features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be available on the web server so that the site can run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
We’ve decided not to restrict our current and potential clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which implies that in case you purchase a hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with only one mouse click through our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, so you will not have to possess any technical or programming capabilities. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without any hassles, so if you decide to swap your present web hosting provider and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you have developed over the years will continue to run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a site created with an earlier version of PHP and you’ve committed time and efforts towards setting it up, filling security breaches and inserting web content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as most web hosting providers nowadays offer support only for the most recently published PHP version and drop the older ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to select the version that your own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or misspending time and efforts striving to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also have the ability to pick a different PHP version for each site that you host in your account by using an .htaccess configuration file.
