PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the main difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it better to have them all at hand? How could you switch between them?
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a popular imperative programming language, which is used to create dynamic sites with interactive features such as forums, e-learning websites or community portals. Unlike static HTML-based sites, a PHP-driven site can serve different web content to each visitor under the very same URL. Since PHP-based web apps can be managed through a Control Panel tool, which you can log in to using any browser, you will not need to possess any web design abilities or past experience whatsoever to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the world are created in PHP is an indication of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to verify whether or not the web server where you host your website supports the same version of PHP as the one that you used while creating the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared service
, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, since we offer support for multiple versions. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed over the years. In stark contrast with many other providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have tweaked its source code to repair safety loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a site created using an older PHP version and you have dedicated time and energy to developing it, patching security loopholes and posting page content, you’ll need to find a web hosting service that can support it, since nearly all web hosting vendors today offer only the most recently unveiled version of PHP and remove the older ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to let you select the version that your own sites need. Our semi-dedicated servers
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which implies that you’ll be able to use both newer and older scripts without losing any custom tweaks or misspending time attempting to make your websites compatible with the hosting platform. The version can be changed from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to set a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
