PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose programming languages that are available out there. Any website or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it is hardly unusual that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with a plethora of different options. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique web content to each visitor although the URL will remain unchanged. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be edited only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a certain website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to work faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Website Hosting
We’ve made the decision not to prevent our present and prospective customers from selecting what PHP version their sites will use, which implies that in case you order a cloud website hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each domain hosted by you. This can be done with only one click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you will not need to have any technical or coding knowledge. You will be able to run websites built with both old and new PHP scripts without having to deal with any problems, so if you wish to leave your current hosting supplier and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve developed through the years will continue to work correctly.
