PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular open-source server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or web-based app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it’s not a surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic website with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display different web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst building a particular website must be installed on the web server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work without any problems even if your scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t invariably equal an insecure one as you may have performed lots of modifications to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect right away. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains simultaneously.
