PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages. It’s rather popular because it is free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites like social networking websites, online shopping portals or online learning portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this type of module and the language offers countless possibilities for the Internet apps that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Moreover, there are tons of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding experience. Given the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you have to make sure that the very same version that you used while building your site is available on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will run flawlessly even if your scripts are outdated. We accept the fact that an old site does not automatically equal a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of modifications to its source code. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your account. You can change the version with only one single click of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect momentarily. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different PHP version for each of your domain names at the same time.
