PHP is among the most commonly used scripting languages. It is rather popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites such as community web portals, online stores or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be installed on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language offers limitless possibilities for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. On top of that, there are a lot of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding abilities. As there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you have to check if the same exact version that you used while building your site is available on the web server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Hosting
In case you order a shared hosting plan from our company, you’ll never need to ponder whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since several PHP versions are supported on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single click of the mouse and if you wish to change the current version, the new settings will be applied straight away. Thus, years of work on websites built with an older version will not be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we strongly maintain that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will use.
