PHP is among the most widely used open-source server-side coding languages. It is extremely popular because it’s free software, which can be used to create interactive sites like community websites, online stores or e-teaching sites as opposed to static HTML sites. A PHP module should be available on the web server where a PHP site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there are no license charges for this type of module and the language provides incalculable options for the Internet apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP-driven websites. On top of that, there are a ton of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without the need to have any coding capabilities. As there are a couple of versions of PHP, you have to verify if the exact same version that you used while developing your website is installed on the server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Hosting

With our Linux hosting packages, you will be able to choose which version of PHP will be enabled for your shared web hosting account, as we support several versions. With just one mouse click, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel without removing the older versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve built throughout the years. Unlike a lot of other web hosts, we will not force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is insecure as you may have performed modifications to its code to repair security loopholes. For your convenience, you will even be able to set a different version of PHP for each website that you host in your hosting account.
