PHP is amongst the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages. It’s highly popular since it’s free software, which can be used to build responsive websites such as social networking sites, e-commerce portals or online learning sites rather than static HTML-based sites. A PHP module should be installed on the server where a PHP-driven site is hosted so that its source code can be interpreted. Since there aren’t any license fees for this sort of module and the language itself provides innumerable possibilities for the web apps that you develop, there are hundreds of millions of PHP-driven sites. What’s more, there are loads of PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your websites without having to possess any coding abilities. As there are a number of versions of PHP, you must make sure that the same version that you used while developing your website is present on the web server as well.

PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Hosting

In case you purchase a cloud hosting package from us, you won’t ever have to question yourself about whether your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since several PHP versions are enabled on our servers 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 just one single mouse click and in case you’d like to change the version, the new settings will be applied momentarily. Thus, several years of work on sites built with an older version will not go down the tube. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different PHP version for each domain name hosted in your account, which goes to say that you can run older and newer scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer support for one, sometimes for two versions of PHP. Unlike them, we reckon that you should be the one to pick the version that will be used by your own websites.
