PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used dynamic programming languages out there. Any site or Internet application built using PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is not that unusual that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic website with a multitude of features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while setting up a given website must be activated on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
With our cloud website hosting services, you will be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since we support multiple versions. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have developed through the years. In contrast with many other web hosts, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug safety holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each single site that you host in your web hosting account.
