PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose server-side scripting languages. It’s extremely popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop interactive websites such as social networking websites, e-stores or e-teaching websites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module should be activated on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language provides innumerable possibilities for the web applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Additionally, there are tons of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming expertise. Considering the fact that there’re a handful of PHP versions, you must confirm if the same exact version that you used while building your website is available on the server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting
Our web hosting servers support different PHP versions, which goes to say that your sites will work properly even if your PHP-based scripts are outdated. We know that an old site does not always mean a vulnerable one as you may have carried out a lot of source code mods. This is why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can decide which version will be enabled for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with one mouse click via your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will be applied instantly. If you would like to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
