PHP is amongst the most widely used server-side coding languages. It’s extremely popular since it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive sites like social networks, shopping portals or online learning sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be read. As there are no license taxes for this type of module and the language itself provides unlimited options for the web-based apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Besides, there’re many PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any programming capabilities. Given the fact that there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you should confirm if the same exact version that you used whilst building your site is present on the server too.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting
In case you buy a cloud hosting package from us, you will never have to ponder over whether or not your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer several PHP versions for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one mouse click and in case you wish to change the current version, the new settings will take effect instantaneously. Thus, years of work on sites created with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast with them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own sites will be using.
