Learn more about PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, why it’s useful to have them all and how to swiftly transition among different PHP versions.
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, commonly known as PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, online learning sites or community websites. In stark contrast to static HTML sites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can log in to from any Internet browser, you won’t need to possess any coding knowledge or prior experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You must only check if the web server where you host your site supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our shared website hosting plans
, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared account, since several versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve created over the years. Unlike lots of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its code to fix safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a site built with a previous version of PHP and you’ve contributed time and energy to developing it, patching safety breaches and posting web content, you’ll need a web hosting service that can support it, since the majority of web hosting providers nowadays support only the newest version of PHP and abandon the earlier ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you pick the exact version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom settings or misspending time striving to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. The version can be changed via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each website hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
