PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the main difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it preferable to have them all available? How could you switch between them?
PHP is amongst the most widely used reflective programming languages. It is rather popular as it’s free software, which can be used to build interactive sites like community portals, shopping portals or e-learning websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides unlimited possibilities for the web apps that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Besides, there are a ton of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re several PHP versions, you should make certain that the exact same version that you used while setting up your website is available on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting
servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have implemented plenty of mods to its code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated servers
support multiple versions of PHP, which means that you’ll be able to use all the apps that you have created through the years. The Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to set the needed version with only one click of the mouse. You can choose between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you’d like to host multiple websites in one and the very same account and they have different requirements respecting the web hosting environment, you’ll be able to specify a different version for each one of them regardless of which version is selected for the account itself. This is possible owing to our in-house developed cloud platform, which permits us to run different versions of PHP at once. In contrast, most hosting vendors normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
