PHP, which is a meta-acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet application built with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language absolutely universal and it isn’t really that surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to set up an interactive website with a lot of options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will display different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a certain website must be configured on the server so that the site can run properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
In case you order a shared website hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to think about whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we support several PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, so you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly deem that you should be the one to select the version that your own sites will use.
