PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used web programming languages available out there. Any website or web-based application created with PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not unusual that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with numerous features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show different web content to each user although the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be available on the web server so that the site can run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work properly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website does not inevitably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of modifications to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with one mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
