PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used general-purpose server-side programming languages available out there. Any website or web app written in PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which renders the language truly universal and it is barely a surprise that there are a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML thanks to the fact that it allows you to build a responsive website with a ton of options. A PHP-based social network, for example, will serve different content to each user irrespective of the fact that the URL won’t change. In comparison, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be updated only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while developing a specific website must be activated on the server in order for the site to run flawlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your web hosting account, since several versions are supported on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and every time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you have developed over the years. In stark contrast to many other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to fix safety gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your web hosting account.
