PHP is among the most commonly used coding languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which you can use to build responsive websites like community websites, e-commerce portals or e-teaching sites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be activated on the web server where a PHP website is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘translated’. Since there are no license fees for this type of module and the language offers endless options for the web-based apps that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP sites. What is more, there are a myriad of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding know-how. Since there’re a few PHP versions, you ought to verify whether the very same version that you used while developing your website is installed on the web server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
If you buy a hosting package from us, you’ll never have to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting environment, since different versions of PHP are available on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single mouse click and if you wish to change the version, the update will take effect instantly. In this way, years of work on sites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most hosting providers on the marketplace offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In stark contrast to them, we think that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your own websites.
