PHP is amongst the most commonly used scripting languages. It’s pretty popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive websites like community web portals, e-commerce portals or school websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. Since there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language provides unlimited options for the Internet apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Also, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding expertise. Given the fact that there are a handful of PHP versions, you should verify that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is available on the server too.

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

If you buy a shared website hosting plan from us, you won’t ever have to worry about whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple PHP versions are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click of the mouse and if you’d like to change the version, the update will be applied momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. Unlike them, we are convinced that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own sites.
