PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It is very popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites like community websites, Internet shops or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself provides unlimited options for the web-based apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. What’s more, there’re many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming experience. Considering the fact that there’re a number of versions of PHP, you need to verify whether the exact same version that you used whilst setting up your site is available on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support different PHP versions, which implies that your sites will run properly even if your scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site does not always suggest a vulnerable one as you may have done a lot of source code mods. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can choose which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied straight away. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
