PHP is amongst the most widely used coding languages. It is very popular because it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive sites like social networks, web stores or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language itself provides infinite possibilities for the web applications that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Additionally, there’re loads of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there are a number of PHP versions, you should verify if the same version that you used while building your site is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting servers support several versions of PHP, so your sites will work without any problems no matter if your PHP-based scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old website does not necessarily equal an insecure one as you may have performed a lot of mods to its source code. This is why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can select which version will be active for your shared hosting account. The version can be changed with just one single click via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will be applied instantly. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even an option to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
