PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most widely used curly-brace programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app built on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it isn’t a huge surprise that there are a few million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to set up a dynamic website with heaps of different options. A PHP-based community website, for instance, will show different content to each visitor in spite of the fact that the URL will stay the same. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the version that was used while building a particular website must be enabled on the web server so that the site can run flawlessly.

With our cloud hosting, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared account, as we support different versions. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve developed over the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have performed modifications to its code to fill safety gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each site that you host in your web hosting account.
