PHP, which is a recursive initialism for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used open-source scripting languages available out there. Any site or web application created in PHP will run on a given server provided that a PHP module is activated, which renders the language truly universal and it’s hardly surprising that there are actually a couple of million web servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP websites hosted on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it enables you to set up an interactive website with lots of features. A PHP-based social networking website, for example, will show unique content to each user despite the fact that the URL will stay the same. In contrast, HTML-based websites are static and the content on the pages can be edited only manually. Just like any other software, PHP has different versions and the version that was used whilst setting up a particular website must be available on the web server in order for the site to work faultlessly.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
We’ve decided not to prevent our present and potential clients from choosing the PHP version that will be used by their sites, which suggests that in case you buy a shared hosting plan from our company, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5, not only for the account as a whole, but also for each individual domain name hosted by you. This can be accomplished with just one click of the mouse from our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel via which all accounts are administered, which is the reason why you won’t need to possess any technical or coding abilities. You’ll be able to host websites based on both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any impediments, so if you want to change your present hosting services provider and switch over to us, you can be certain that all the sites that you’ve created over the years will continue to work correctly.
