PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application based on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is not all that unusual that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with a vast number of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show unique content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the page URL will be the same. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst building a particular website must be set up on the server in order for the site to behave properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
If you get a cloud website hosting package from our company, you won’t ever have to ponder if your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer support for several PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one mouse click and in case you wish to change the version, the new settings will take effect right away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version will not go down the tube. Our web 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 providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.
