PHP is one of the most commonly used imperative programming languages. It’s exceptionally popular because it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites such as community websites, online stores or online teaching websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be enabled on the server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘translated’. Since there aren’t any license fees for this kind of module and the language itself provides unlimited possibilities for the web-based applications that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Moreover, there’re a lot of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you need to confirm that the same exact version that you used while building your website is present on the server too.

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

If you purchase a shared website hosting plan from our company, you won’t ever need to ponder if your websites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since several versions of PHP are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to select PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with only one single click and in case you need to change the version, the update will take effect instantly. Thus, many years of work on sites built with an older version of PHP will not be lost. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which means that you can use older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we strongly believe that you should be the one to pick the version that your own websites will be using.
