PHP is among the most commonly used open-source web programming languages. It’s highly popular as it’s free software, which can be used to build interactive sites like community sites, e-shops or online learning websites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘translated’. Because there are no license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers unlimited possibilities for the web apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there are heaps of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming capabilities. Since there’re a number of versions of PHP, you ought to verify whether the very same version that you used whilst developing your website is installed on the web server as well.

With our shared web hosting, you will be able to pick which version of PHP will be enabled for your account, since different versions are enabled on our servers. With just one mouse click, you will be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and whenever a new version is launched in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the previous ones. Thus, you will be able to host all the websites that you’ve created through the years. In stark contrast to lots of other web hosting companies, we won’t force you to update such sites, as a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to repair security gaps. For your convenience, you will even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each individual site that you host in your account.
