PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used open-source web programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it is not a big surprise that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to develop a responsive site with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve unique content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a given website must be available on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your sites will run properly no matter if your PHP scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not inevitably imply a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your account. The version can be changed with one click of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect straight away. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We are unswerving in our opinion that several years spent creating a site should not be wasted, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from our company, you will be able to run any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In contrast with lots of web hosts, we support a number of different versions of PHP on our innovative cloud platform – 4, 5 and 7.

The latter can be done merely by putting an .htaccess file into the given site’s root folder. You can change the version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the update will be applied in less than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you won’t ever encounter any website incompatibility predicaments.
