PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous curly-brace programming languages out there. Any site or app built with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s scarcely a surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it permits you to develop a responsive website with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show unique web content to each user even though the URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a given website must be set up 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 Linux shared web hosting, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared hosting account, since we offer support for different versions. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is released in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have built through the years. In contrast with many other hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have modified its source code to plug security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your hosting account.
