PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, typically called PHP, is a popular open-source server-side coding language, which is used to build dynamic websites with interactive components such as discussion forums, school websites or community websites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based sites, a PHP site can serve unique content to each visitor under the same exact page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web-based apps can be managed via a single Control Panel, which you can access using any web browser, you won’t need to have any web development abilities or practical experience whatsoever in order to maintain a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites around the globe are PHP-based is an indication of the language’s popularity and simplicity of use. You only ought to verify whether the web server where you host your site supports the exact same version of PHP as the one that you used whilst building the site.
