PHP is one of the most widely used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it is free software, which you can use to set up interactive sites such as community web portals, e-stores or e-learning websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Because there are no license charges for this type of module and the language itself offers limitless options for the web-based apps that you set up, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Moreover, there’re a lot of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Considering the fact that there are several versions of PHP, you must verify if the same exact version that you used whilst building your site is enabled on the web server too.

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

With our cloud hosting plans, you will be able to pick the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, as multiple versions are activated on our servers. With only one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is launched in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you’ll be able to host all the sites that you’ve built over the years. In contrast to lots of other hosting vendors, we won’t compel you to update such websites, because a script may be out of date, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s vulnerable as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to plug safety breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your shared account.
