PHP is amongst the most commonly used object-oriented programming languages. It is quite popular since it’s free software, which can be used to develop responsive sites like community sites, online shopping portals or online teaching portals instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decoded’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language provides endless possibilities for the web applications that you set up, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP sites. On top of that, there are plenty of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming knowledge. As there’re a couple of PHP versions, you must ensure that the same exact version that you used whilst setting up your site is installed on the web server too.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Shared Hosting

With our shared plans, you’ll be able to choose which version of PHP will be active for your web hosting account, since several versions are installed on our servers. With as little as one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and every time a new version is released in the future, we will add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you will be able to host all the websites that you have created throughout the years. In stark contrast with lots of other providers, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its source code to plug safety breaches. For your convenience, you will even be able to choose a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your account.
