PHP is one of the most widely used dynamic programming languages. It’s quite popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites like community sites, web shops or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language provides endless possibilities for the web-based apps that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Plus, there’re a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming knowledge. Since there’re several PHP versions, you ought to check whether the same version that you used whilst building your website is present on the web server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our cloud service, you’ll be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your shared account, as different versions are enabled on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is published in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have created through the years. In contrast with lots of other hosting providers, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s insecure since you may have modified its code to fix safety loopholes. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each individual website hosted in your shared hosting account.
