PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular object-oriented programming languages out there. Any website or Internet application created with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it is not really a big surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it enables you to create an interactive website with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will not change. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a particular website must be available on the server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since several versions are available on our servers. With just one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have modified its source code to fill safety breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single website that you host in your account.
