PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most commonly used open-source scripting languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app based on PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it is not very surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to create an interactive site with an immense number of options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will show unique content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
If you order a cloud website hosting package from our company, you will never have to question yourself on whether your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since different PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect momentarily. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we maintain that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own websites.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated hosting packages support multiple versions of PHP, which suggests that you’ll be able to use all the web-based applications that you have created throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each account, will permit you to activate the needed version with one single mouse click. You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. If you wish to host multiple sites under one and the same account and they have distinctive requirements with regards to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to set a different PHP version for each one of them irrespective of which version is enabled for the account itself. That’s achievable thanks to our in-house created cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions simultaneously. By comparison, the vast majority of web hosts normally offer one, occasionally two versions.
