PHP is one of the most commonly used web programming languages. It is extremely popular as it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive websites such as community portals, e-stores or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license fees for this type of module and the language provides incalculable options for the applications that you create, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. What is more, there’re an enormous number of 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 different versions of PHP, you should make sure that the same exact version that you used whilst developing your site is installed on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
With our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be active for your shared hosting account, as multiple versions are activated on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier ones. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have developed over the years. Unlike lots of other hosting providers, we won’t compel you to update such sites, because a script may be out of date, but this does not necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have performed modifications to its source code to prevent security breaches. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different PHP version for each individual site hosted in your web hosting account.
