PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
Find out about PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, why it’s useful to have them all and how to promptly transition between different PHP versions.
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a famous open-source programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements such as forums, online learning portals or social networking sites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP website can serve different web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via one Control Panel tool, which you can access from any web browser, you won’t need to have any programming skills or past experience to administer a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the globe are created in PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only have to make sure that the web server where you host your site supports the same exact version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our Linux shared web hosting
, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is published in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created throughout the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other companies, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have edited its source code to fix safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even if your sites were created with an earlier PHP version, you’ll be able to host them in a semi-dedicated server
account from us, since we support several versions running at the same time on our servers and each of them can be enabled for your account with just a click from our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. Other than the newest PHP 7, we also offer 5.2, 5.3 and the older PHP 4, which has already been abandoned by the vast majority of hosting suppliers, but we strongly consider that you should not be compelled to modify a website that took several years to create, as older script language syntax doesn’t automatically equal safety flaws. Quite the opposite, a correctly maintained website using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a non-maintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we will also provide you with the possibility to select a different version of PHP for each individual site within your account.
