PHP is among the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages. It is rather popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites such as community portals, e-stores or online teaching portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language itself offers limitless possibilities for the web applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there are numerous open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding capabilities. As there are a handful of PHP versions, you must ensure that the same version that you used whilst setting up your site is installed on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to restrict our current and future customers from selecting the PHP version that their sites will use, which suggests that in case you buy a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each domain that you host. This can be accomplished with just one single click from our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel via which all shared web hosting accounts are managed, which is why you will not need to possess any technical or programming abilities. You will be able to run websites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any impediments, so if you decide to drop your present web hosting vendor and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have set up through the years will continue to run impeccably.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even if your sites were built with an earlier PHP version, you will be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server account from us, as we support multiple versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Apart from the most recent PHP 7, we also support 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly deem that you shouldn’t be compelled to modify a website that took several years to build, since older script language syntax doesn’t always suggest security breaches. On the contrary, an adequately maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience, we’ll also offer you the opportunity to pick a different PHP version for each individual website within your account.
