PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, also called PHP, is a popular general-purpose server-side programming language, which is used to create dynamic websites with interactive elements such as discussion forums, online teaching websites or community web portals. In contrast with static HTML websites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same exact URL. As PHP-based web applications can be managed via a Control Panel tool, which you can log onto from any Internet browser, you will not need any web development abilities or past experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP-powered site. The fact that 100s of millions of websites all over the globe are created with PHP is indicative of the language’s popularity and ease of use. You only ought to verify if the web server where you host your site supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while building the site.
