PHP is amongst the most widely used open-source web programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive websites such as social networking sites, Internet shops or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its code can be read. Since there aren’t any license taxes for such a module and the language provides limitless options for the web applications that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Also, there are many open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming abilities. Since there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you need to confirm that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your website is available on the web server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Website Hosting
With our Linux shared website hosting, you’ll be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your shared account, as different versions are activated on our servers. With just one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is unveiled in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve created through the years. In contrast with lots of other hosting providers, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure since you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you will even be able to specify a different version of PHP for each single site hosted in your hosting account.
PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
