PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the real difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's better to have them all available? How can you switch between them?
PHP is amongst the most commonly used curly-brace programming languages. It is extremely popular because it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites such as community websites, e-shops or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license charges for this type of module and the language itself offers incalculable options for the Internet apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Plus, there’re an enormous number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming skills. Since there are a number of versions of PHP, you have to confirm whether the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your website is present on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud hosting, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed throughout the years. Unlike many other hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have modified its code to fix security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each website that you host in your web hosting account.
