PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based app built on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s not surprising that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it enables you to develop a dynamic site with an enormous number of options. A PHP-based community website, for example, will show different content to each user although the URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while developing a specific website must be available on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.

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

Our web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your websites will work without any problem even if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old website does not invariably suggest a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will be applied immediately. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
