PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous open-source server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s by no means unusual that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a responsive website with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a certain website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you order a cloud hosting plan from us, you will never need to speculate as to whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since we support several PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one click of the mouse and in case you’d like to change the version, the update will take effect right away. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP will not go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will be using.

You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you would like to host multiple websites in the same account and they have distinctive requirements referring to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to set a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version is enabled for the account as a whole. That’s achievable thanks to our custom-built cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple versions of PHP at once. In stark comparison, the great majority of web hosting suppliers usually offer one, maximum two versions.
