PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's best to have them all available? How could you switch between them?
PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it is free software, which can be used to build interactive sites like community web portals, Internet shops or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. Because there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language provides endless options for the Internet applications that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Furthermore, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding capabilities. As there are several PHP versions, you ought to check whether the very same version that you used whilst creating your site is present on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
With our shared plans
, you will be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, as multiple versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. Unlike lots of other web hosting companies, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have modified its source code to repair security breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a website created using an earlier version of PHP and you have contributed time and energy into setting it up, fixing security gaps and appending page content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as nearly all hosting suppliers these days support only the latest PHP version and remove the older versions. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your own websites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting plans
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any custom settings or misspending time and energy trying to make your sites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will apply to the entire semi-dedicated account, but you will also be able to specify a different PHP version for each site hosted in your account using an .htaccess config file.
