PHP, which is a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most popular server-side scripting languages out there. Any site or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is installed, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s hardly unusual that there are a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to create a responsive site with a lot of options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show different content to each user even though the page URL will stay the same. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while creating a specific website must be configured on the server in order for the site to behave faultlessly.

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

Our shared web hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your websites will run properly no matter if your scripts are out of date. We know that an old website doesn’t always equal an insecure one as you may have performed a lot of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can pick which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with one single click through your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied momentarily. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
