PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet application created with PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it’s not a big surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to build a responsive website with lots of features. A PHP-based community website, for example, will serve unique web content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a certain website must be activated on the web server in order for the site to work properly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is released in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have created over the years. In contrast to lots of other web hosting suppliers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have edited its code to patch security holes. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your shared hosting account.
