PHP is amongst the most commonly used server-side scripting languages. It’s highly popular as it is free software, which can be used to create interactive sites such as community websites, web stores or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. As there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language offers endless possibilities for the web-based applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Furthermore, there are tons of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to have any programming knowledge. Since there are a couple of versions of PHP, you need to make certain that the very same version that you used whilst building your site is present on the server too.

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

Our shared hosting servers support several PHP versions, which suggests that your sites will work correctly no matter if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We recognize the fact that an old site does not invariably imply a vulnerable one as you may have implemented lots of code modifications. That’s the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can pick which one will be enabled for your web hosting account. You can change the version with just one click of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect instantly. If you would like to run both newer and older scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each of your domain names simultaneously.
