PHP is amongst the most commonly used server-side scripting languages. It’s exceptionally popular as it is free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites such as social networking websites, Internet shops or e-teaching websites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its code can be ‘decoded’. As there aren’t any license taxes for this type of module and the language itself offers limitless options for the Internet applications that you create, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. Besides, there are an enormous number of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming capabilities. Considering the fact that there’re several versions of PHP, you ought to verify whether the same version that you used while building your website is activated on the server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting servers support different versions of PHP, so your websites will run faultlessly no matter if your PHP scripts are out of date. We recognize the fact that an old site does not necessarily imply a vulnerable one as you may have done lots of mods to its code. That’s why we support PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and you can choose which one will be active for your web hosting account. The version can be changed with a single click of the mouse inside your Hepsia Control Panel and the update will take effect instantaneously. If you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there’s even an option to use a different PHP version for each domain name of yours at the same time.
