PHP is amongst the most widely used open-source scripting languages. It’s very popular since it’s free software, which you can use to build responsive websites such as social networking sites, online stores or online teaching sites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be read. As there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language itself provides unlimited possibilities for the apps that you set up, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. In addition, there’re a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. Considering the fact that there’re a number of PHP versions, you ought to confirm that the same version that you used whilst building your site is available on the server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
In case you order a hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to wonder whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one click and in case you’d like to change the version, the update will be applied straight away. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older version will not be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will be using.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a site created using an earlier version of PHP and you have put time and energy toward setting it up, plugging security gaps and entering content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, as the majority of web hosting providers nowadays offer only the most recently launched version of PHP and give up the previous ones. We, however, have decided to allow you to choose the exact version that your websites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple versions of PHP 5 as well as PHP 4, which means that you’ll be able to run both newer and older scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or wasting time and energy striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will affect the entire account, but you will also be able to choose a different version for each website hosted in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
