PHP, which stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most popular general-purpose server-side scripting languages available out there. Any website or application written in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is installed, which renders the language really universal and it’s not a huge surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to build an interactive site with a myriad of different options. A PHP-based community portal, for example, will serve different web content to each user regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst creating a particular website must be enabled on the server in order for the site to run properly.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Web Hosting

Our cloud web hosting servers support several PHP versions, which goes to say that your websites will run without any problem even if your PHP scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website doesn’t inevitably equal a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of code modifications. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your account. The version can be changed with only one click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect instantly. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
