PHP is amongst the most commonly used programming languages. It’s very popular as it is free software, which can be used to create responsive websites like social networking sites, online stores or e-learning websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides innumerable possibilities for the web applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Moreover, there are a myriad of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you need to confirm if the very same version that you used whilst developing your website is enabled on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting
With our Linux hosting packages, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, since different versions are installed on our servers. With only one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed through the years. Unlike many other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it’s insecure as you may have tweaked its code to prevent security gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to choose a different PHP version for each single website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
