PHP, which is a bacronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous open-source web programming languages that are available out there. Any website or Internet application built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which makes the language really universal and it is not really a huge surprise that there are actually a couple of million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML owing to the fact that it allows you to develop a dynamic website with a ton of different options. A PHP-based social networking site, for instance, will show unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. 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 one that was used while creating a certain website must be configured on the web server in order for the site to behave flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your sites will run without any problems no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We realize that an old site doesn’t inevitably suggest an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. You can change the version with just one click of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect right away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.
