PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web app built with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it is by no means surprising that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with loads of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display different web content to each visitor although the page URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be installed on the server so that the site can run faultlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

We’re unswerving in our belief that years spent setting up a website should not go down the drain, which means that in case you order a semi-dedicated server from us, you will be able to use any script, regardless of whether it is new or old. In stark contrast with lots of companies, we support a number of different PHP versions on our ground-breaking cloud hosting platform – 4, 5 and 7. You will not only have the ability to activate the needed version via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, but you’ll also have the possibility to specify a different version for each website. This can be accomplished simply by placing an .htaccess file within the root folder of the given site. You can change the current version both for a single site and for the whole account and the new settings will be applied in only a couple of minutes. With our hosting services, you can rest assured that you won’t ever run into any site compatibility issues.
