PHP is amongst the most widely used class-based programming languages. It’s very popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites like social networking sites, shopping portals or school websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers unlimited options for the web apps that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. In addition, there’re tons of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming abilities. Given the fact that there’re a few versions of PHP, you must check if the same version that you used while building your site is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our current and prospective customers from picking what PHP version their websites will use, which implies that if you get a cloud hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are managed, so you will not need to have any programming or technical experience. You will be able to run sites based on both new and old scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you would like to change your current hosting provider and switch over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you’ve created throughout the years will continue to run perfectly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a website built on an older PHP version and you’ve committed time and efforts towards setting it up, plugging security holes and inserting web content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all web hosting suppliers today offer only the newest PHP version and abandon the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to pick the version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, so you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any manual tweaks or wasting time and energy trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. The version can be changed through the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to choose a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
