PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose web programming languages. It is highly popular since it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive sites like social networking websites, e-commerce portals or online teaching sites instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. Because there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language provides unlimited possibilities for the Internet applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. In addition, there’re an immense number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re different PHP versions, you must make sure that the very same version that you used while building your website is activated on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
With our web hosting, you’ll be able to select the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are activated on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have set up over the years. In contrast to a lot of other hosting providers, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have edited its source code to plug security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
