PHP is among the most commonly used imperative programming languages. It is extremely popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop interactive sites such as social networking sites, online shopping portals or online teaching sites rather than static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language provides endless options for the applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Additionally, there’re a myriad of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming capabilities. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must confirm whether the very same version that you used whilst setting up your site is enabled on the web server as well.

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

With our Linux website hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared hosting account, as several versions are supported on our servers. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have set up throughout the years. In stark contrast with lots of other companies, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its code to plug security holes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your shared hosting account.
