PHP is one of the most commonly used scripting languages. It is pretty popular because it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites like social networking websites, e-shops or online learning sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be installed on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language provides endless options for the applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP websites. Furthermore, there’re a huge number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any programming abilities. As there are different versions of PHP, you must verify whether the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your website is enabled on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support several PHP versions, which implies that your websites will work correctly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We acknowledge the fact that an old site doesn’t inevitably equal an insecure one as you may have carried out a lot of mods to its source code. That is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which one will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantaneously. In case you’d like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different PHP version for each of your domains at the same time.
