PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose programming languages. It is exceptionally popular as it is free software, which you can use to build interactive sites like community web portals, e-shops or online teaching websites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the web-based applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there’re a myriad of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding skills. As there are several PHP versions, you ought to ensure that the exact same version that you used while creating your site is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which suggests that your websites will run faultlessly even if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We accept the fact that an old site doesn’t necessarily mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be enabled for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with one single mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel and the new settings will take effect momentarily. If you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domains simultaneously.
