PHP – Shared Hosting for Running…

Shared hosting is an easy way to deploy PHP code especially if you are new to technology. To run PHP on your own server you need to be able to build, configure and maintain a server. You may make a mistake with a firewall configuration, and your code will not run. Paying $5 a month for a shared hosting plan allows you to focus on learning PHP.

  1. I signed up for shared hosting through hostgator. I had to modify the .htaccess file so that it would recognize my SSL certificate; everything works so long as I type out instead of How do I rewrite this file so that I automatically redirect all http requests to https instead? Thanks!
    .htaccess file on hostgator:
    # Use PHP71
    AddHandler application/x-httpd-php71 .php
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
