PHP is one of the most commonly used web programming languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive sites like community websites, web stores or e-learning websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be available on the server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language provides infinite possibilities for the Internet applications that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there’re a vast number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any coding capabilities. Considering the fact that there are a couple of versions of PHP, you should verify whether the same version that you used whilst setting up your website is available on the server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

If you buy a cloud hosting plan from our company, you will never need to think about whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are enabled on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one single click and in case you need to change the current version, the update will be applied instantaneously. Thus, many years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tubes. Our 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 older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that will be used by your own websites.
