PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous curly-brace programming languages available out there. Any website or Internet app created with PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it’s not all that unusual that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to develop an interactive site with heaps of options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst building a specific website must be activated on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

With our Linux cloud website hosting, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are activated on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built through the years. In stark contrast to many other hosting suppliers, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to repair safety loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your web hosting account.
