PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the real difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it best to have them all available? How do you switch between them?
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise known as PHP, is a famous open-source server-side coding language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive components like discussion boards, e-teaching websites or community web portals. In stark contrast to static HTML-based websites, a PHP-powered website can serve unique web content to each user under the very same page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based web applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can sign onto using any browser, you won’t need to possess any computer programming knowledge or past experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of sites around the world are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only have to confirm whether the web server on which your website is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to restrict our current and prospective clients from choosing what PHP version their websites will use, so in case you purchase a shared web hosting
plan from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click from our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t need any programming or technical abilities. You will be able to run sites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to deal with any problems, so if you’d like to leave your present web hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have built throughout the years will continue to run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a site built using a previous PHP version and you have committed time and energy to setting it up, fixing security holes and inputting page content, you will need to find a web hosting service that can support it, as nearly all hosting suppliers nowadays offer support only for the most recent PHP version and abandon the previous versions. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the exact version that your own sites need. Our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which goes to say that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without forfeiting any manual modifications or misspending time and energy trying to make your sites compatible with the web hosting platform. You can change the current version via the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole semi-dedicated account, but you will also have the ability to choose a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your account by using an .htaccess config file.
