PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages available out there. Any website or web application built using 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 scarcely a surprise that there are several million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to create an interactive website with an enormous number of features. A PHP-based social network, for instance, will show unique web content to each user regardless of the fact that the URL won’t change. In contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while building a given website must be configured on the server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

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

If you buy a shared hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to wonder whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click and if you would like to change the current version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older version won’t be wasted. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, so you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we feel that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will be using.
