PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages. It is exceptionally popular as it is free software, which you can use to create interactive sites like community web portals, online shops or e-teaching portals rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. As there are no license charges for this sort of module and the language itself provides countless possibilities for the web applications that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there are heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming expertise. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you have to check if the exact same version that you used whilst creating your website is present on the server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting

Our web hosting servers support several versions of PHP, which goes to say that your websites will run without any problem even if your scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site doesn’t always equal a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of modifications to its code. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 and you can decide which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single click inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours at the same time.
