PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any site or Internet app built using 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 not really that surprising that there are actually several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to set up an interactive site with many different features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will serve unique web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a specific website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to behave properly.

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

Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your websites will work without any problem even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website doesn’t always imply a vulnerable one as you may have performed a lot of modifications to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which version will be active for your web hosting account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect right away. If you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names simultaneously.
