PHP is amongst the most commonly used web programming languages. It is pretty popular since it is free software, which you can use to create responsive sites like community web portals, shopping portals or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there are no license charges for this type of module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the web-based applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Besides, there are many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any programming skills. As there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you ought to check whether the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is installed on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
We’ve made a conscious decision not to restrict our present and prospective clients from choosing the PHP version that their sites will be using, so if you buy a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each single domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single mouse click through our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is the reason why you will not have to possess any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to manage websites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to deal with any obstacles, so if you wish to leave your present hosting vendor and move over to us, you can be sure that all the sites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work perfectly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a website based on an earlier version of PHP and you have funneled time and effort into setting it up, filling safety holes and posting web content, you will need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosting providers today support only the most recently introduced version of PHP and drop the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your sites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated packages support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, so you’ll be able to use both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual settings or frittering away time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the hosting environment. You can change the version through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such a change will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you will also have the ability to specify a different PHP version for each site hosted in your account using an .htaccess file.
