PHP is amongst the most widely used multi-paradigm programming languages. It’s rather popular since it’s free software, which can be used to build interactive websites such as community portals, online shopping portals or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language offers infinite possibilities for the apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Also, there are lots of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any programming abilities. As there are a handful of versions of PHP, you have to check whether the same version that you used while setting up your site is installed on the web server as well.

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

If you purchase a shared website hosting package from us, you won’t ever need to speculate as to whether or not your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer support for different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click and if you’d like to change the current version, the update will be applied momentarily. In this way, several years of work on websites built with an older version of PHP won’t be wasted. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we are strongly convinced that you should be the one to select the version that your own websites will be using.
