PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular open-source server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s by no means unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to create a responsive site with a plethora of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a given website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve decided not to restrict our present and potential customers from choosing what PHP version will be used by their sites, so in case you get a shared hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click through our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are managed, which is why you won’t need any coding or technical know-how. You will be able to host sites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any obstructions, so if you wish to drop your present web hosting services provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have developed throughout the years will continue to work perfectly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting support multiple PHP versions, which means that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you have created over the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every semi-dedicated account, will enable you to activate the needed version with one single mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. In case you wish to host multiple sites in the very same account and they have distinctive requirements connected to the hosting environment, you will be able to choose a different version for each one of them irrespective of which version has been selected for the account as a whole. That’s accomplishable thanks to our custom cloud hosting platform, which allows us to run several versions of PHP all at the same time. By contrast, the great majority of hosting vendors usually offer one, rarely two versions.
