PHP is amongst the most commonly used class-based programming languages. It’s rather popular because it is free software, which can be used to create interactive websites such as community websites, e-stores or online teaching websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides infinite possibilities for the web-based apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there’re numerous open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any coding experience. Considering the fact that there are a number of PHP versions, you must make certain that the same version that you used whilst setting up your site is present on the web server as well.

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

In case you purchase a website hosting package from us, you’ll never need to speculate on whether or not your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, since several PHP versions are supported on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with only one click of the mouse and if you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. Thus, years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP won’t be in vain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, so you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly hold that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your very own sites.
