PHP, which is a metacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous programming languages available out there. Any website or web app created using 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 unusual that there are actually several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it permits you to develop an interactive site with a large number of features. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the URL will remain the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a particular website must be present on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which means that your websites will run correctly no matter if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t always equal a vulnerable one as you may have carried out plenty of mods to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
