PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages that are available out there. Any site or application built with PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language really universal and it’s not really a big surprise that there are actually a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it allows you to build an interactive site with an immense number of features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will show unique content to each user in spite of the fact that the page URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a given website must be set up 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

We’ve decided not to restrict our current and prospective clients from picking the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which goes to say that in case you purchase a shared website hosting plan from our company, you will be able to select between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be done with just one click from our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any programming or technical know-how. You’ll be able to manage websites based on both new and old scripts without having to deal with any problems, so if you wish to drop your present web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can rest assured that all the websites that you’ve created over the years will continue to run correctly.
