PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous programming languages out there. Any site or web-based app created in PHP will run on a given web server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which makes the language absolutely universal and it’s not that surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic serving website with lots of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will display unique content to each user even though the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a specific website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to work properly.

Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which implies that your sites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have performed plenty of modifications to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your account. You can change the version with only one click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
