PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used open-source scripting languages available out there. Any website or Internet application created with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it is not really a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with heaps of different options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

With our cloud web hosting, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared account, as several versions are activated on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed throughout the years. In contrast with lots of other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure since you may have modified its source code to fix safety holes. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your shared hosting account.
