PHP is one of the most widely used multiparadigm programming languages. It is highly popular as it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites like community sites, web shops or online learning websites rather than static HTML sites. A PHP module should be present on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its source code can be read. Since there are no license taxes for such a module and the language itself provides innumerable options for the web-based applications that you set up, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there’re a vast number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming expertise. As there’re a handful of versions of PHP, you should confirm that the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your website is enabled on the server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
With our hosting, you will be able to select which version of PHP will be active for your shared web hosting account, as several versions are activated on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and each time a new version is unveiled in the future, we’ll include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you have created through the years. In contrast to lots of other hosting vendors, we will not force you to update such sites, because a script may be outdated, but this does not mean that it’s vulnerable since you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug security loopholes. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to set a different version of PHP for each individual website hosted in your shared account.
