PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it best to have them all available? How could you switch between them?
PHP is among the most widely used multi-paradigm programming languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites such as community websites, Internet shops or online teaching sites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be interpreted. As there are no license fees for such a module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. In addition, there’re loads of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding expertise. Since there’re several versions of PHP, you need to verify that the very same version that you used while developing your website is activated on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
We have made a decision not to prevent our present and future customers from selecting what PHP version their sites will use, which means that if you order a shared website hosting
package from us, you’ll be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each domain name hosted by you. This can be done with just one click through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t need to have any technical or coding capabilities. You will be able to manage websites based on both new and old PHP scripts without having to overcome any predicaments, so if you’d like to abandon your present hosting supplier and move over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years will continue to work faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Even in case your websites were built with an earlier version of PHP, you will 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 one of them can be enabled for your account with no more than one click of the mouse through our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In addition to the latest PHP 7, we also offer 5.3, 5.2 and the older PHP 4. The latter has already been abandoned by the vast majority of web hosting suppliers, but we are convinced that you should not be compelled to modify a site that took several years to set up, as older scripting language syntax doesn’t always imply safety vulnerabilities. Just the opposite, a rightly maintained site using PHP 4 can be more reliable than a mismaintained one using PHP 5. For your convenience’s sake, we’ll also give you the opportunity to set a different version for each single site within your account.
