PHP is among the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages. It is exceptionally popular because it’s free software, which can be used to set up interactive sites like community portals, Internet shops or e-teaching portals instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. As there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language itself offers innumerable options for the Internet applications that you build, there are 100s of millions of PHP-powered sites. Besides, there’re a large number of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without having to possess any coding skills. As there’re a few PHP versions, you need to verify if the exact same version that you used while developing your site is available on the web server as well.

PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Cloud Hosting

With our Linux cloud hosting, you will be able to select the PHP version that will be active for your web hosting account, since multiple versions are enabled on our servers. With just one click of the mouse, you’ll be able to switch between PHP 4, 5, 7 and anytime a new version is unveiled in the future, we will include it in the Hepsia Control Panel without removing the previous versions. Thus, you will be able to host all the sites that you’ve developed throughout the years. In stark contrast with a lot of other companies, we won’t force you to update such websites, as a script may be outdated, but this does not automatically mean that it’s insecure as you may have implemented modifications to its source code to patch security gaps. For the sake of your convenience, you’ll even be able to pick a different version of PHP for each single website hosted in your shared hosting account.
