PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular class-based programming languages that are available out there. Any site or app based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language truly universal and it’s not really a big surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic serving site with numerous different features. A PHP-based community portal, for instance, will show unique web content to each visitor although the page URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a given website must be installed on the web server so that the site can run correctly.

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

Our cloud web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your websites will run flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily suggest a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of source code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which one will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one single click of the mouse within your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours simultaneously.
