PHP is among the most widely used general-purpose scripting languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive websites such as social networking websites, online shopping portals or e-teaching websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be activated on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license charges for such a module and the language offers infinite options for the applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there’re a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a few versions of PHP, you should verify that the exact same version that you used while developing your site is activated on the server as well.

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

If you buy a shared hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever need to worry about whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we support several versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one click and if you wish to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. Thus, years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.
