PHP, which is an initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous general-purpose programming languages available out there. Any website or web-based app written in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not unusual that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic site with a ton of features. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst creating a given website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work faultlessly even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We acknowledge the fact that an old website doesn’t automatically mean a vulnerable one as you may have done plenty of mods to its code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which version will be active for your shared hosting account. You can change the version with just one click of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.
