PHP is one of the most commonly used open-source scripting languages. It is quite popular because it’s free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites such as community portals, online shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the applications that you build, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Additionally, there are an immense number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any coding abilities. As there are a few versions of PHP, you ought to confirm if the exact same version that you used while setting up your site is present on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting, you’ll be able to choose which PHP version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With as little as one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the sites that you have built over the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it is vulnerable as you may have carried out modifications to its code to repair safety breaches. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your web hosting account.
