PHP is among the most commonly used open-source scripting languages. It is pretty popular because it’s free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like social networks, shopping portals or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Because there are no license charges for this type of module and the language itself provides endless possibilities for the apps that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. Besides, there are a large number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding knowledge. Since there are a handful of versions of PHP, you must verify that the exact same version that you used whilst creating your site is activated on the web server too.

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

In case you purchase a cloud hosting package from us, you’ll never need to speculate whether your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer support for multiple versions of PHP for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to choose PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 with just one click of the mouse and if you wish to change the version, the new settings will be applied instantaneously. In this way, years of work on websites created with an older version will not go down the drain. Our hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which means that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace support one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast with them, we reckon that you should be the one to choose the version that your own websites will use.
