PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular interpreted programming languages available out there. Any site or web application created in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it is scarcely surprising that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to develop an interactive site with numerous options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show different content to each user although the URL will stay unchanged. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting, you’ll be able to select which version of PHP will be active for your web hosting account, since we offer support for multiple versions. With as little as one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. In contrast to lots of other web hosting suppliers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable since you may have carried out modifications to its code to plug security holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your shared hosting account.
