PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used open-source programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with plenty of different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a given website must be set up on the server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your websites will work without any problem no matter if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website doesn’t automatically suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of code mods. That is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can select which one will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
It is our unswerving opinion that several years spent creating a website should not be lost, which suggests that in case you get a semi-dedicated server from our company, you’ll be able to use any script, irrespective of whether it is old or new. In contrast with a lot of hosting companies, we support several different versions of PHP on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform – 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4. You will not only be able to activate the required version via your Hepsia Control Panel, but you will also have the opportunity to set a different version for each single website. This can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file within the root directory of the given site. You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the account itself and the new settings will be applied in less than several minutes. With our web hosting services, you can be certain that you will never face any site incompatibility predicaments.
