PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used object-oriented programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application created with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t that surprising that there are actually several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic serving website with an abundance of options. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show different content to each user although the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a specific website must be configured on the server in order for the site to work correctly.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Website Hosting

Our website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which means that your sites will work flawlessly even if your scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old website doesn’t inevitably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be active for your hosting account. The version can be changed with one click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.
