PHP is among the most commonly used coding languages. It is pretty popular since it is free software, which can be used to build interactive sites such as social networking sites, e-commerce portals or online learning sites instead of static HTML sites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. As there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language itself offers incalculable possibilities for the Internet apps that you create, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there are plenty of open-source PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any programming skills. Since there’re several PHP versions, you have to verify if the same version that you used whilst creating your site is installed on the web server too.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting
If you purchase a hosting package from our company, you will never need to speculate as to whether your sites are compatible with the web hosting platform, since multiple versions of PHP are activated on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will permit you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with just one single mouse click and in case you need to change the version, the new settings will be applied right away. Thus, several years of work on websites built with an older PHP version won’t go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even allow you to use a different version of PHP for each domain hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. In stark contrast to them, we hold that you should be the one to select the version that your very own sites will use.
