PHP is amongst the most commonly used general-purpose web programming languages. It is exceptionally popular because it is free software, which you can use to create responsive sites such as social networking sites, online stores or online learning sites as opposed to static HTML websites. A PHP module must be available on the server where a PHP-powered site is hosted so that its source code can be read. Because there are no license taxes for this sort of module and the language provides unlimited possibilities for the web-based applications that you build, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP websites. On top of that, there are many PHP scripts, which you can use for your websites without needing to have any coding know-how. Considering the fact that there’re a few PHP versions, you ought to verify that the very same version that you used whilst developing your website is present on the server as well.
PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 Support in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a website created in an older PHP version and you have invested time and effort in setting it up, patching security breaches and entering content, you’ll need to find a hosting service that can support it, since the great majority of web hosting suppliers nowadays offer support only for the most recent version of PHP and remove the previous ones. We, on the other hand, have decided to permit you to choose the exact version that your websites require. Our semi-dedicated hosting services support PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8, which suggests that you will be able to run both older and newer scripts without losing any custom modifications or frittering away time striving to make your sites compatible with the web hosting environment. You can change the current version from the Hepsia Control Panel and such a change will apply to the whole account, but you will also have the ability to set a different version for each single site that you host in your account using an .htaccess configuration file.
