PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most famous server-side coding languages that are available out there. Any website or application created with PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is not that surprising that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it enables you to set up a dynamic website with a plethora of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will show unique web content to each visitor even though the URL will stay unchanged. On the other hand, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used while creating a certain website must be available on the server in order for the site to work properly.

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

With our Linux shared hosting, you’ll be able to choose the PHP version that will be enabled for your shared hosting account, as we offer support for multiple versions. With as little as one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have modified its code to prevent safety gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each single site hosted in your web hosting account.
