PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It’s rather popular since it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites like community web portals, online stores or online learning sites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language offers innumerable possibilities for the web-based apps that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. What is more, there are plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding abilities. Considering the fact that there’re several PHP versions, you have to check if the exact same version that you used while creating your website is enabled on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
We have made the decision not to restrict our present and potential clients from choosing what PHP version their sites will be using, which goes to say that if you purchase a web hosting plan from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each domain that you host. This can be done with just one single mouse click through our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, which is the reason why you will not need to have any programming or technical abilities. You will be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without trouble, so if you’d like to drop your current hosting supplier and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years will continue to work impeccably.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a site based on a previous version of PHP and you have contributed time and effort towards setting it up, repairing security holes and inserting content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of hosting companies nowadays offer support only for the most recently launched version of PHP and drop the earlier ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to choose the version that your own websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated service support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom modifications or misspending time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire account, but you’ll also be able to set a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your account by using an .htaccess file.
