PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used imperative programming languages out there. Any website or app written in PHP will run on a given web server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language absolutely universal and it’s scarcely a surprise that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites hosted on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it permits you to develop a dynamic site with many options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will not change. By contrast, HTML-based sites are static and the page content itself can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a given website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work flawlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
In case you order a cloud hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to wonder whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since multiple PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and if you’d like to change the current version, the new settings will take effect straight away. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we trust that you should be the one to choose the version that your very own websites will use.
