PHP is among the most commonly used open-source server-side coding languages. It is highly popular since it’s free software, which you can use to set up responsive websites such as social networking websites, e-commerce portals or e-learning portals as opposed to static HTML-based sites. A PHP module must be available on the web server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its PHP code can be read. As there are no license fees for this type of module and the language itself provides countless possibilities for the Internet apps that you develop, there are 100s of millions of PHP websites. Plus, there are a myriad of PHP scripts, which you can use for your sites without the need to possess any programming know-how. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you need to confirm that the same exact version that you used whilst creating your website is installed on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud hosting plan from us, you won’t ever need to question yourself on whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since we offer support for different PHP versions for the sake of your convenience. The Hepsia hosting Control Panel will allow you to pick PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 or 5.5 with only one single click of the mouse and in case you want to change the current version, the new settings will take effect momentarily. In this way, years of work on websites built with an older version will not go down the tubes. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which suggests that you can run newer and older scripts at the same time. Most web hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two PHP versions. In contrast to them, we believe that you should be the one to select the version that your very own websites will use.
