PHP is amongst the most widely used open-source server-side programming languages. It’s rather popular as it is free software, which can be used to set up responsive websites such as community websites, e-commerce portals or e-teaching sites rather than 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’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this sort of module and the language itself provides incalculable possibilities for the applications that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven sites. Besides, there are tons of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding know-how. Since there’re several versions of PHP, you should verify that the same version that you used while building your site is activated on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

If you get a cloud website hosting plan from us, you will never have to ask yourself if your websites are compatible with the web hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are available on our servers for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to select PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one single click and if you’d like to change the current version, the new settings will take effect instantaneously. In this way, several years of work on sites created with an older version of PHP will not go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, so you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we deem that you should be the one to select the version that will be used by your very own websites.
