PHP, which is a backronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is among the most widely used curly-brace programming languages out there. Any website or web-based application built on PHP will run on a given server as long as a PHP module is installed, which makes the language truly universal and it isn’t that unusual that there are actually several million servers that support it and 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites running on them. PHP is preferred over HTML because it allows you to develop a dynamic serving website with numerous features. A PHP-based social network, for example, will display different web content to each user despite the fact that the URL will not change. By contrast, HTML sites are static and the page content itself can be modified only manually. Like any other software program, PHP has several versions and the one that was used whilst building a certain website must be present on the server so that the site can run correctly.

In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed throughout the years. In contrast with a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its code to patch security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each site that you host in your shared hosting account.
