PHP is amongst the most widely used server-side coding languages. It is very popular as it’s free software, which you can use to create responsive websites like community web portals, online shops or school websites as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. Since there are no license fees for this sort of module and the language offers incalculable options for the Internet apps that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered websites. Furthermore, there are an immense number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming abilities. Considering the fact that there are a number of PHP versions, you have to make sure that the very same version that you used whilst setting up your site is available on the web server too.

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

If you buy a shared hosting package from us, you’ll never have to wonder if your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, as we offer support for multiple PHP versions for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 with just one single mouse click and if you need to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantly. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version will not be in vain. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we think that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own sites.
