PHP is among the most widely used programming languages. It is pretty popular because it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites such as community sites, Internet shops or online teaching websites rather than static HTML websites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself provides limitless options for the Internet applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. Moreover, there are lots of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming skills. Given the fact that there are different PHP versions, you have to make certain that the same version that you used whilst creating your site is present on the web server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Web Hosting

If you order a web hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to ask yourself whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since we offer support for different versions of PHP for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one single click and if you need to change the current version, the update will take effect instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older PHP version won’t be lost. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can use older and newer scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market support one, sometimes two PHP versions. In stark contrast with them, we strongly maintain that you should be the one to choose the version that your own sites will be using.
