PHP is one of the most widely used coding languages. It is exceptionally popular as it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive sites like community sites, web shops or online learning sites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Furthermore, there’re lots of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming expertise. Considering the fact that there are different versions of PHP, you must verify whether the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is activated on the web server too.

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

In case you buy a web hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate as to whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as multiple versions of PHP are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single mouse click and if you would like to change the current version, the update will be applied straight away. In this way, many years of work on websites built with an older version won’t be lost. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast with them, we deem that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your very own websites.
