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 preferable to have them all at hand? How could you switch between them?
PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source programming languages. It is quite popular as it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive sites like community web portals, online stores or e-learning websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Because there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the web applications that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Besides, there are a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming knowledge. Given the fact that there are a couple of versions of PHP, you need to verify if the same version that you used while building your website is enabled on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
If you purchase a shared hosting package from us, you will never need to ponder over whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one mouse click and if you wish to change the version, the update will take effect right away. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older version won’t be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will use.
