PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most commonly used multi-paradigm programming languages available out there. Any site or application built using PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t really a surprise that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to build a dynamic serving website with numerous options. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will serve different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL will stay unchanged. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst developing a certain website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.

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

If you purchase a hosting package from us, you’ll never need to speculate if your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we offer support for multiple PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one mouse click and in case you’d like to change the current version, the update will take effect immediately. In this way, several years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP won’t be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will be using.
