PHP is among the most widely used open-source programming languages. It is extremely popular because it is free software, which you can use to create responsive websites like community web portals, e-shops or e-learning sites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be interpreted. As there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Besides, there’re plenty of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding skills. Since there are a number of PHP versions, you ought to make sure that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your website is available on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
Our cloud web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work flawlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website does not always mean an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its source code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains at the same time.
