PHP is one of the most commonly used general-purpose programming languages. It’s extremely popular because it is free software, which can be used to create responsive websites like social networking sites, web shops or e-learning sites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module should be activated on the server where a PHP-powered website is hosted so that its source code can be ‘decrypted’. Since there aren’t any license taxes for this kind of module and the language itself offers countless possibilities for the web-based applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. What’s more, there are a large number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding experience. Since there’re several PHP versions, you have to confirm that the same version that you used while building your site is available on the web server as well.

Our cloud web hosting servers support different PHP versions, so your websites will run flawlessly even if your PHP scripts are outdated. We know that an old website does not invariably mean an insecure one as you may have carried out lots of source code modifications. That is the reason why we support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 and you can decide which version will be active for your shared web hosting account. The version can be changed with only one click of the mouse inside your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and the update will take effect immediately. In case you wish to run both older and newer scripts, there is even a possibility to use a different version of PHP for each domain name of yours simultaneously.
