PHP, which is a recursive abbreviation for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is one of the most famous scripting languages out there. Any website or web application built with PHP will run on a given server on the condition that a PHP module is enabled, which makes the language really universal and it isn’t that surprising that there are actually a few million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites running on them. What makes PHP preferred over HTML is the fact that it enables you to create an interactive site with numerous features. A PHP-based community site, for instance, will display different content to each visitor irrespective of the fact that the page URL will remain unchanged. On the other hand, HTML sites are static and the page content can be updated only manually. Just like any other software program, PHP has different versions and the one that was used while creating a certain website must be configured on the server in order for the site to run properly.

We recognize the fact that an old website does not automatically imply a vulnerable one as you may have carried out lots of modifications to its source code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can select which one will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click of the mouse via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. In case you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours simultaneously.
