PHP is among the most commonly used server-side scripting languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it is free software, which can be used to develop interactive sites like community portals, web shops or online teaching portals instead of static HTML websites. A PHP module should be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself offers endless possibilities for the web applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. Plus, there’re a myriad of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to possess any coding skills. As there are different PHP versions, you need to check if the exact same version that you used whilst developing your website is installed on the server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5 and PHP 7 Support in Shared Web Hosting

We’ve reached a decision not to restrict our current and future customers from picking what PHP version their sites will be using, which implies that if you purchase a shared web hosting plan from us, you will be able to pick between versions 4, 5 and 7, not only for the hosting account as a whole, but also for each individual domain hosted by you. This can be done with just one click of the mouse through our custom Hepsia Control Panel via which all web hosting accounts are administered, which is why you won’t need to have any technical or programming capabilities. You will be able to run sites built with both new and old PHP-based scripts without having to overcome any hindrances, so if you’d like to swap your present web hosting provider and migrate over to us, you can be sure that all the websites that you have built through the years will continue to run flawlessly.
