PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous reflective programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it’s no wonder that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create a dynamic website with an abundance of different features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will show unique content to each visitor even though the URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a particular website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

With our shared web hosting, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, since multiple versions are available on our servers. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve built through the years. In contrast to lots of other hosting providers, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it is insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fill security loopholes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your web hosting account.
