PHP is among the most widely used curly-bracket programming languages. It’s rather popular since it is free software, which you can use to build responsive sites like community web portals, e-commerce portals or online learning websites instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license fees for this type of module and the language itself offers incalculable options for the applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Besides, there are heaps of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to have any programming know-how. Since there are a couple of PHP versions, you ought to check whether the same version that you used whilst creating your website is activated on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Web Hosting
With our Linux shared web hosting packages
, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be enabled for your shared account, as several versions are enabled on our servers. With only one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you have set up throughout the years. Unlike many other hosting vendors, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t automatically mean that it is insecure as you may have edited its source code to repair safety holes. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your shared web hosting account.
