PHP is one of the most commonly used programming languages. It is very popular since it is free software, which can be used to build responsive websites like community websites, e-commerce portals or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Because there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers infinite possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Additionally, there are a lot of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming abilities. As there’re several versions of PHP, you ought to verify if the same exact version that you used whilst creating your site is installed on the web server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting

With our Linux shared website hosting packages, you will be able to choose which PHP version will be enabled for your web hosting account, since multiple versions are supported on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years. In contrast to many other web hosting suppliers, we will not compel you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to fill safety gaps. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your shared web hosting account.
