PHP is amongst the most commonly used dynamic programming languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to create interactive websites such as social networks, web stores or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language provides innumerable options for the Internet apps that you set up, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. What’s more, there are loads of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there are a handful of versions of PHP, you must verify if the exact same version that you used while creating your website is enabled on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our cloud hosting plans
, you will be able to pick the version of PHP that will be active for your shared web hosting account, since multiple versions are activated on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have developed over the years. In contrast with lots of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its source code to fix security gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to set a different PHP version for each individual site that you host in your web hosting account.
