PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular server-side scripting languages available out there. Any site or application created in PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s not really that surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it allows you to build a responsive site with a myriad of different features. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will display different web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will be the same. In comparison, HTML websites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Like any other software, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while setting up a given website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
We have made a conscious decision not to prevent our current and future customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will use, so if you buy a hosting plan from us, you’ll be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account in general, but also for each individual domain name that you host. This can be done with just one single click of the mouse from our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all hosting accounts are administered, so you won’t need to have any programming or technical knowledge. You will be able to manage sites based on both old and new scripts without having to cope with any impediments, so if you want to leave your present web hosting company and switch over to us, you can rest assured that all the sites that you have set up through the years will continue to run correctly.
