PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most commonly used general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any site or app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it’s by no means surprising that there are a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to create a responsive site with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community web portal, for instance, will show unique web content to each user even though the URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst creating a certain website must be present on the server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

Our shared website hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will work faultlessly even if your scripts are outdated. We know that an old website doesn’t inevitably mean a vulnerable one as you may have implemented a lot of code modifications. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one mouse click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.
