PHP is among the most commonly used imperative programming languages. It’s very popular as it is free software, which you can use to develop responsive sites like community portals, web stores or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language offers unlimited options for the Internet applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. What is more, there’re loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding skills. Since there’re a few PHP versions, you need to make sure that the exact same version that you used while building your website is installed on the server as well.

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

With our shared plans, you’ll be able to pick which PHP version will be active for your shared web hosting account, since several versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is introduced in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you’ve built over the years. In contrast to lots of other providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s insecure as you may have carried out modifications to its source code to prevent safety gaps. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to choose a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your web hosting account.
