PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose server-side coding languages. It’s highly popular since it’s free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites like community sites, Internet shops or e-learning websites as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language offers endless options for the applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP sites. Also, there’re heaps of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a few PHP versions, you ought to make certain that the exact same version that you used while developing your site is activated on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will run flawlessly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We realize that an old website does not automatically equal an insecure one as you may have done lots of modifications to its code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied right away. In case you want to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours at the same time.
