PHP is among the most widely used object-oriented programming languages. It is quite popular because it is free software, which can be used to build responsive websites like social networking websites, e-shops or online teaching websites rather than static HTML-based 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 are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself offers limitless options for the web apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. What is more, there’re heaps of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding expertise. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of PHP versions, you should make certain that the same exact version that you used while setting up your site is activated on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Web Hosting
With our Linux web hosting, you will be able to select the version of PHP that will be enabled for your hosting account, as different versions are installed on our servers. With only one click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and each time a new version is launched in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve built through the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t mean that it is vulnerable since you may have modified its source code to fill security breaches. For your convenience’s sake, you will even be able to specify a different PHP version for each single site that you host in your shared account.
