PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular web programming languages available out there. Any site or web app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s little surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive website with a large number of options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show different content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the URL will stay the same. In comparison, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a particular website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud plans, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast to many other web hosts, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to repair security loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared hosting account.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can change the current version not only for a single site, but also for the entire account and the update will be applied in just a few minutes.
