PHP is among the most widely used server-side scripting languages. It’s pretty popular since it is free software, which can be used to set up interactive websites like community web portals, web shops or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. As there aren’t any license charges for such a module and the language itself offers infinite possibilities for the web applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there are a multitude of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming expertise. Since there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you must check whether the very same version that you used whilst building your website is present on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Website Hosting
In case you buy a website hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as several PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and in case you want to change the version, the update will take effect right away. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we hold that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will use.
