PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular server-side programming languages available out there. Any site or application created using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language truly universal and it is not very surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create an interactive site with numerous different features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve unique web content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a specific website must be enabled on the web server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

With our shared website hosting plans, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be active for your shared account, since different versions are activated on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have developed through the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting suppliers, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have implemented modifications to its source code to prevent security gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared web hosting account.
