PHP is amongst the most widely used scripting languages. It is quite popular because it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites like community portals, e-commerce portals or online learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license charges for this sort of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the Internet apps that you build, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Besides, there are a huge number of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding expertise. Considering the fact that there’re a number of PHP versions, you have to check whether the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is installed on the server too.

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

With our shared website hosting, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be enabled for your hosting account, since multiple versions are available on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve set up throughout the years. In stark contrast with lots of other providers, we won’t compel you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its code to plug security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your shared hosting account.
