PHP is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages. It is rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to create interactive sites like community sites, online shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides unlimited options for the web-based apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. What’s more, there’re lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming abilities. As there’re a few PHP versions, you need to check if the same exact version that you used while developing your website is available on the server too.

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

If you get a shared web hosting package from us, you’ll never need to speculate about whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as we offer support for different versions of PHP for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click and if you would like to change the version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly trust that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your own websites.
