PHP is among the most commonly used interpreted programming languages. It’s pretty popular since it’s free software, which you can use to build interactive websites like community portals, Internet shops or online teaching sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the server where a PHP site is hosted so that its PHP code can be ‘decoded’. Since there are no license charges for such a module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the web apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. What is more, there are plenty of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any programming know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a couple of versions of PHP, you ought to verify if the same version that you used while building your website is activated on the server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting packages
, you will be able to choose the version of PHP that will be active for your account, since several versions are supported on our servers. With as little as one click, you will be able to switch between PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 and 4 and each time a new version is published in the future, we’ll add it to the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the earlier versions. In this way, you’ll be able to host all the websites that you have set up through the years. In stark contrast to lots of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such sites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its code to fix security breaches. For your convenience, you’ll even be able to select a different version of PHP for each website hosted in your shared web hosting account.
