PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's better to have them all available? How could you switch between them?
PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous reflective programming languages available out there. Any site or application built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to build an interactive website with many different options. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will serve different content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst developing a specific website must be present on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you purchase a cloud web hosting
package from us, you will never have to ask yourself whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since different PHP versions are installed on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single mouse click and in case you wish to change the version, the new settings will take effect instantly. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we consider that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will be using.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
support multiple PHP versions, which implies that you’ll be able to use all the web apps that you have built throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with each and every account, will enable you to activate the required version with one mouse click. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple sites in one account and they have diverse requirements with reference to the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to choose a different PHP version for each of them irrespective of which version has been enabled for the account itself. This is accomplishable thanks to our in-house developed cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run different PHP versions simultaneously. By comparison, most hosting suppliers usually support one, in rare cases – two versions.
