PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous server-side programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app written in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t all that unusual that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic serving site with tons of different options. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique content to each user in spite of the fact that the page URL will not change. In comparison, 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 while developing a certain website must be activated on the server so that the site can run flawlessly.

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

In case you buy a web hosting package from our company, you’ll never need to ponder whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting platform, since different versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single mouse click and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we believe that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own sites will use.
