PHP, which is a recursive backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous curly-bracket programming languages that are available out there. Any site or Internet app created in PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is not really that surprising that there are actually a few million servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to create a dynamic site with numerous different features. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will serve unique web content to each user despite the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a certain website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run faultlessly.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

If you order a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll never need to ponder whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we offer several PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one click of the mouse and if you wish to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantly. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not go down the tubes. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.
