PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly known as PHP, is a popular interpreted programming language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive elements such as message boards, online learning sites or social networking sites. In comparison with static HTML-based sites, a PHP website can serve unique web content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Given the fact that PHP-based Internet applications can be managed through one Control Panel, which you can sign on to using any web browser, you won’t have to possess any computer programming abilities or previous experience whatsoever to maintain a PHP-driven site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites around the world are created in PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You should only check if the server where you host your site supports the very same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.
