PHP is amongst the most commonly used open-source server-side scripting languages. It’s highly popular since it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive sites like social networks, e-commerce portals or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license charges for this type of module and the language provides limitless options for the Internet applications that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Moreover, there’re loads of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding know-how. Given the fact that there’re a few versions of PHP, you ought to verify that the same exact version that you used while developing your site is activated on the web server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Hosting

If you order a hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to speculate on whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting environment, as multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and in case you want to change the version, the update will be applied right away. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older PHP version will not go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own websites.
