PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used server-side coding languages available out there. Any website or web app built using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t surprising that there are several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving website with a ton of options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique content to each user even though the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a specific website must be installed on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your websites will run correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t always mean an insecure one as you may have done lots of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with one single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect straight away. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
