PHP, which is an abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is amongst the most widely used general-purpose programming languages out there. Any website or Internet app based on PHP will run on a given web server as long as a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language truly universal and it is not that surprising that there are several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML due to the fact that it permits you to set up a responsive site with a plethora of features. A PHP-based social networking site, for example, will show different content to each user in spite of the fact that the URL will be the same. By contrast, HTML websites are static and the page content can be edited only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst setting up a given website must be set up on the web server in order for the site to behave correctly.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
We’ve made a conscious decision not to prevent our present and future customers from choosing the PHP version that their websites will be using, which means that if you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain that you host. This can be accomplished with only one single click of the mouse through our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need any programming or technical experience. You will be able to manage sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to deal with any obstacles, so if you wish to abandon your current web hosting vendor and migrate over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years will continue to work flawlessly.
