PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular object-oriented programming languages out there. Any site or application created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it isn’t really all that surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to build a dynamic serving site with numerous different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a specific website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated servers support multiple PHP versions, which goes to say that you will be able to use all the web-based applications that you’ve set up throughout the years. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each single semi-dedicated account, will permit you to enable the version that you need with only one click of the mouse. You can pick between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. In case you’d like to host multiple sites in the very same account and they have distinct requirements connected to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to pick a different PHP version for each and every one of them no matter which version is selected for the account as a whole. This is accomplishable thanks to our in-house built cloud platform, which permits us to run multiple PHP versions all at the same time. In stark contrast, the vast majority of hosting providers typically offer one, sometimes two versions.
