PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular class-based programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app created with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it is not really that unusual that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic website with plenty of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will serve unique web content to each visitor although the URL will remain the same. In comparison, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
We have decided not to prevent our current and potential clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their websites, which suggests that if you buy a cloud hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each domain name that you host. This can be accomplished with only one click of the mouse through our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any programming or technical capabilities. You will be able to manage websites built with both new and old PHP scripts without having to deal with any difficulties, so if you wish to drop your present hosting company and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a site built with an earlier version of PHP and you’ve sacrificed time and energy in developing it, filling security holes and embedding web page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as the majority of hosting vendors these days offer only the most recently introduced PHP version and remove the earlier ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to pick the exact version that your very own websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which means that you will be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or misspending time and energy struggling to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. The current version can be changed through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the whole semi-dedicated account, but you’ll also be able to select a different version for each website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
