PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous general-purpose server-side coding language, which can be used to build dynamic sites with interactive components like bulletin boards, e-teaching portals or social networks. In contrast to static HTML websites, a PHP website can display unique web content to each visitor under the exact same page URL. Because of the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed through a single Control Panel, which you can sign into using any Internet browser, you will not need to possess any coding capabilities or prior experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP website. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are based on PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You should only confirm that the server on which your site is hosted supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while creating the website.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
Our cloud hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your sites will run without any problem even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website doesn’t necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of source code modifications. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect momentarily. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
