PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the actual difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it best to have them all at hand? How do you switch between them?
PHP is one of the most widely used coding languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites such as social networking websites, Internet shops or e-learning sites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license charges for this kind of module and the language offers infinite options for the applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. What’s more, there’re a lot of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming knowledge. Considering the fact that there are a number of PHP versions, you must verify if the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is enabled on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Hosting
With our hosting
, you will be able to choose the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared account, as several versions are available on our servers. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have built over the years. Unlike lots of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable as you may have done modifications to its source code to prevent security gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each individual site hosted in your shared account.
