PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used multiparadigm programming languages that are available out there. Any website or app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is little surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a dynamic serving website with a huge number of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will serve different web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will not change. In contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be activated on the web server so that the site can run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
Our cloud website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will work correctly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of mods to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which version will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
