PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, otherwise called PHP, is a famous object-oriented programming language, which can be used to set up dynamic sites with interactive components like discussion forums, online teaching sites or social networking websites. In stark contrast with static HTML-based websites, a PHP site can serve different web content to each user under the exact same page URL. Due to the fact that PHP-based web apps can be managed via one single Control Panel tool, which you can sign in to using any browser, you will not need to have any coding expertise or prior experience whatsoever in order to run a PHP site. The fact that 100s of millions of sites all over the world are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the simplicity of use of the language. You only need to make sure that the server where you host your website supports the same PHP version as the one that you used while developing the site.
