PHP is one of the most widely used dynamic programming languages. It’s quite popular as it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites like social networking sites, e-commerce portals or online teaching sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license charges for such a module and the language provides unlimited options for the web-based apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Furthermore, there’re numerous open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming abilities. As there are several versions of PHP, you need to make sure that the same exact version that you used whilst creating your website is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support different PHP versions, which means that your sites will run without any problem even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We know that an old site does not necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have done a lot of source code mods. This is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can choose which version will be active for your hosting account. You can change the version with just one click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain of yours at the same time.
