PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages out there. Any website or app built on PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not really a huge surprise that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to create an interactive website with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based community site, for example, will display unique content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while developing a particular website must be enabled on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
If you get a website hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever have to speculate on whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, as we support multiple PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one single click of the mouse and if you want to change the current version, the new settings will take effect straight away. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older PHP version will not go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we believe that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.
