PHP is among the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive websites like community websites, web stores or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides endless options for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming capabilities. Given the fact that there are several PHP versions, you should verify that the same version that you used while setting up your website is activated on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to prevent our current and prospective clients from picking what PHP version will be used by their sites, which goes to say that if you get a website hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the account itself, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not need any programming or technical knowledge. You will be able to host sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to cope with any impediments, so if you decide to abandon your current provider and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a website created with an older PHP version and you’ve poured time and efforts into developing it, patching safety breaches and appending web page content, you’ll need a hosting service that can support it, as the vast majority of web hosting vendors these days support only the newest version of PHP and abandon the older versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your own sites require. Our semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without losing any custom settings or misspending time struggling to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The current version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess configuration file.
