PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's preferable to have them all at hand? How do you switch between them?
PHP is among the most widely used server-side coding languages. It’s very popular since it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive websites such as social networks, online shops or e-learning portals instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides innumerable possibilities for the apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Plus, there are a lot of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming abilities. As there’re a few versions of PHP, you should make sure that the exact same version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting
servers support different versions of PHP, which implies that your websites will run faultlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old website does not necessarily suggest an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of source code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with just one single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a website created with a previous version of PHP and you have committed time and effort to setting it up, patching security breaches and inserting web page content, you will need a hosting service that can support it, since the vast majority of web hosting providers today offer support only for the latest version of PHP and abandon the earlier ones. We, however, have decided to permit you to select the version that your websites require. Our Linux semi-dedicated servers
support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7, which means that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or misspending time striving to make your websites compatible with the web hosting platform. The version can be changed from the Hepsia Control Panel and such an update will apply to the whole semi-dedicated server account, but you’ll also be able to specify a different version for each individual website that you host in your account by means of an .htaccess file.
