PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular web programming languages that are available out there. Any site or app written in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s no wonder that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving site with a large number of features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve different content to each user although the page URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while creating a particular website must be set up 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 will be able to pick the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared account, since we offer support for several versions. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed over the years. In contrast with a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have modified its code to plug security gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you’ll even be able to select a different PHP version for each website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
