PHP, which is an acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most famous server-side scripting languages that are available out there. Any site or web-based application built using PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language really universal and it is not really a big surprise that there are several million web servers that support it and hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it allows you to develop a responsive website with a multitude of different options. A PHP-based community web portal, for example, will display unique web content to each user irrespective of the fact that the page URL will be the same. In contrast, HTML sites are static and the content on the pages can be modified only manually. Just like any other piece of software, PHP has several versions and the one that was used while building a specific website must be configured on the server so that the site can run faultlessly.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting services, you’ll be able to pick the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, as different versions are available on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have created through the years. In contrast with a lot of other companies, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its code to plug safety loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your shared account.

In contrast, the majority of web hosts normally support one, sometimes two versions.
