PHP is one of the most widely used server-side programming languages. It’s pretty popular because it is free software, which can be used to build interactive websites like community web portals, Internet shops or e-teaching portals as opposed to static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be enabled on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license fees for such a module and the language offers endless options for the applications that you create, there’re 100s of millions of PHP websites. Besides, there are tons of PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there’re different versions of PHP, you must verify that the same version that you used while setting up your site is activated on the server too.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Website Hosting

If you purchase a cloud website hosting package from our company, you’ll never have to think about whether your sites are compatible with the hosting platform, as different versions of PHP are installed on our servers for your convenience’s sake. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with only one mouse click and if you need to change the version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites created with an older version will not be in vain. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most hosting providers on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we strongly think that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.
