PHP is among the most commonly used general-purpose server-side coding languages. It is very popular since it is free software, which can be used to create interactive websites like social networking websites, Internet shops or online learning sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this type of module and the language provides endless possibilities for the web apps that you develop, there’re 100s of millions of PHP-powered websites. Furthermore, there’re 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 are a handful of versions of PHP, you should ensure that the exact same version that you used while creating your website is present on the server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Shared Website Hosting

If you order a shared website hosting package from us, you will never have to speculate about whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since we offer support for different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single mouse click and if you want to change the current version, the update will take effect straight away. In this way, several years of work on websites created with an older version of PHP will not be wasted. Our hosting platform will even allow you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can use newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting providers on the marketplace offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we strongly consider that you should be the one to pick the version that your very own websites will use.
