PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most popular open-source server-side programming languages available out there. Any site or app created in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language absolutely universal and it isn’t surprising that there are a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because of the fact that it permits you to set up a responsive website with a ton of different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will display different web content to each visitor regardless of the fact that the page URL will remain the same. On the other hand, HTML-based websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the version that was used whilst developing a certain website must be present on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.

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

We’ve reached a decision not to prevent our present and potential customers from picking the PHP version that their websites will use, which implies that in case you buy a shared web hosting package from our company, you will be able to choose between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the web hosting account itself, but also for each single domain hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one single click of the mouse through our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all shared accounts are managed, which is the reason why you won’t have to possess any technical or coding abilities. You’ll be able to run sites based on both old and new PHP scripts without having to cope with any problems, so if you wish to drop your current web hosting supplier and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the websites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to work properly.
