PHP is amongst the most widely used general-purpose server-side programming languages. It is pretty popular because it is free software, which you can use to develop interactive websites such as social networking websites, Internet shops or online teaching websites instead of static HTML-based websites. A PHP module must be present on the web server where a PHP-driven website is hosted so that its code can be ‘deciphered’. Because there aren’t any license charges for this kind of module and the language provides endless options for the web-based applications that you develop, there’re hundreds of millions of PHP-powered sites. In addition, there are a multitude of open-source PHP-based scripts, which you can use for your sites without needing to possess any coding capabilities. Considering the fact that there are a handful of PHP versions, you ought to ensure that the same version that you used whilst creating your site is enabled on the server as well.
PHP 4 and PHP 5 Support in Cloud Web Hosting
If you get a cloud web hosting package from our company, you’ll never need to speculate about whether or not your websites are compatible with the hosting environment, since multiple PHP versions are enabled on our servers for your convenience. The Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to choose PHP 5.5, 5.4, 5.3, 5.2 or 4 with just one mouse click and in case you want to change the current version, the update will be applied instantaneously. In this way, many years of work on sites created with an older PHP version won’t be lost. Our web hosting platform will even permit you to use a different version of PHP for each domain name hosted in your account, which implies that you can run newer and older scripts simultaneously. Most web hosting companies on the market offer one, sometimes two versions of PHP. In contrast to them, we strongly reckon that you should be the one to pick the version that your own sites will be using.
