PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used multiparadigm programming languages out there. Any website or web app written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t that unusual that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to develop a dynamic website with plenty of options. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show unique content to each user in spite of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used whilst creating a specific website must be installed on the server so that the site can run correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud hosting packages, you will be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since different versions are available on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other web hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have tweaked its code to prevent security holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your shared account.
