PHP is among the most widely used open-source web programming languages. It is extremely popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites such as social networking sites, online shops or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license fees for this kind of module and the language offers unlimited possibilities for the applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Additionally, there’re many PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you must check whether the same version that you used whilst creating your website is activated on the web server too.

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

Our web hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your sites will run correctly even if your scripts are outdated. We realize that an old website does not invariably equal an insecure one as you may have implemented lots of mods to its source code. That’s why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one single mouse click through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the new settings will take effect immediately. In case you’d like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain of yours at the same time.
