PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used multi-paradigm programming languages out there. Any site or application created in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t a surprise that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to create a dynamic serving website with a multitude of different features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will display different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL won’t change. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a certain 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 Shared Website Hosting

With our Linux shared website hosting, you’ll be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have built over the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have edited its code to repair security holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual website that you host in your shared web hosting account.
