PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the actual difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? How come it's better to have them all at hand? How do you switch between them?
PHP is one of the most widely used server-side coding languages. It’s pretty popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites like community web portals, e-commerce portals or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language itself offers endless possibilities for the applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Besides, there are lots of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming experience. As there’re a couple of PHP versions, you must ensure that the very same 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
If you purchase a cloud hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to ponder over whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one mouse click and if you’d like to change the version, the new settings will take effect straight away. Thus, many years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we hold that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own websites.
