PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the actual difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's best to have them all at hand? How can you switch between them?
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side scripting language, which is used to set up dynamic sites with interactive features such as discussion forums, school websites or community portals. In contrast with static HTML sites, a PHP website can display different web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web-based applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can log into using any online browser, you won’t need any web development abilities or previous experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are based on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You must only confirm if the server on which your site is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while setting up the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
If you order a shared hosting
package from us, you won’t ever need to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer support for different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one mouse click and if you need to change the current version, the update will be applied right away. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older PHP version won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly think that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated plans
support multiple versions of PHP, which goes to say that you’ll be able to use all the Internet apps that you’ve developed through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to set the version that you need with one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple websites in a single account and they have diverse requirements in connection with the hosting environment, you’ll be able to set a different version for each one of them no matter which version has been selected for the account as a whole. This is possible thanks to our in-house developed cloud web hosting platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions at once. By comparison, the majority of hosting vendors typically offer one, in exceptionally rare cases – two versions.
