PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose web programming languages available out there. Any site or Internet app written in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it’s no surprise that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to build a responsive website with a ton of different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for instance, will display different web content to each user even though the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run correctly.

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

With our Linux cloud web hosting, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared account, as several versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed over the years. Unlike many other web hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is vulnerable as you may have edited its source code to repair security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each site hosted in your shared web hosting account.
