PHP is amongst the most widely used open-source web programming languages. It is rather popular since it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive websites such as social networking websites, web stores or e-learning sites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. Because there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language offers limitless options for the web-based apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. Also, there are a lot of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding skills. Given the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you must verify whether the very same version that you used whilst developing your website is available on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
We’ve made a decision not to restrict our current and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version will be used by their sites, which goes to say that in case you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account itself, but also for each single domain that you host. This can be done with only one click through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you won’t have to possess any programming or technical knowledge. You will be able to host sites based on both old and new PHP-based scripts without a problem, so if you wish to drop your current web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you have set up throughout the years will continue to work correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Even in case 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 different versions running simultaneously on our semi-dedicated servers and each one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click via our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 7, we also offer support for 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the great majority of hosting providers, but we strongly deem that you shouldn’t be forced to modify a site that took several years to set up, since older programming language syntax does not inevitably suggest safety flaws. On the contrary, an adequately maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than an unmaintained one using PHP 5. For the sake of your convenience, we will also provide you with the opportunity to set a different version of PHP for each single site within the account.
