PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support
What's the difference between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7? Why is it preferable to have them all available? How do you switch between them?
PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also known as PHP, is a popular open-source programming language, which is used to develop dynamic sites with interactive elements like forums, online learning portals or social networking websites. In stark contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP-driven website can serve unique content to each user under the exact same URL. Because PHP-based web-based applications can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can log into from any browser, you will not need to have any computer programming capabilities or prior experience in order to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are based on PHP is an indication of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You must only confirm that the server on which your website is hosted supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used while building the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting

, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your web hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is released in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. Unlike lots of other web hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its code to plug safety holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.

You can select between PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7. If you want to host multiple sites under the same account and they have different requirements related to the web hosting platform, you’ll be able to choose a different version for each and every one of them no matter which version is selected for the account itself. This is possible thanks to our custom-created cloud hosting platform, which permits us to run several versions of PHP simultaneously. In comparison, the vast majority of web hosting providers normally offer one, in extremely rare cases – two versions.
