PHP is among the most widely used open-source programming languages. It is rather popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites like social networking websites, online shopping portals or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for this type of module and the language provides incalculable possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Additionally, there’re a large number of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming knowledge. Considering the fact that there are several PHP versions, you must confirm that the same version that you used whilst setting up your website is installed on the 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 select the version of PHP that will be active for your hosting account, since several versions are supported on our servers. With only one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In stark contrast to a lot of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have performed modifications to its code to prevent security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each website hosted in your shared account.
