PHP Hosting

What is PHP?

PHP is a web development-oriented general-purpose programming language, which is free and open-source. PHP began as a tiny project, that grew in popularity as more and more people realized how beneficial it was. Rasmus Lerdorf, a Danish-Canadian programmer, first built it in 1994. The PHP official group currently produces the PHP reference implementation. Initially, the PHP abbreviation was Personal Home Page, however, it is currently used to refer to the recursive acronym "Hypertext Preprocessor". PHP can work in the browser, and may also be run from the command line, assuming PHP is installed on the system that is running the code. You can see your executed code output in the terminal if you don't want it to be visible on the browser.

PHP is highly used in web-based technologies, a study from W3Techs shows that PHP is utilized in 78.5% of all the websites, whose server-side programming language they are aware of. The most popular version of PHP is 7. Web developers utilize PHP as a programming language to construct dynamic web pages, session monitoring, as well as to create full e-commerce websites. As part of a "LAMP" setup, it is frequently installed by default, on Apache web servers with MySQL.

PHP hosting is extremely popular among Freelance web developers and small businesses owners as you can create working websites and webshops much faster than other languages or stacks.

The Zend Engine, which powers the standard PHP interpreter, is a free software provided under the PHP License. PHP has been widely ported and can now be used on a broad range of web servers, and operating systems. Other implementations include a parrot, HPVM, and Hip Hop, all of which were produced by Facebook. Because Facebook itself is powered by PHP. As a result, the firm gave back to the community by releasing them.

PHP key features

PHP hosting remains a popular choice for constructing dynamic websites, due to its interaction with MySQL, regular maintenance, and overall simplicity of use.

Supported databases: PHP connects to all databases, both relational and non-relational, as a result, it can quickly connect to MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase, Informix, Microsoft SQL Server, or any other database.

Platform Independence: PHP is compatible with Linux, and several Unix variations such as HP-UX, Solaris, OpenBSD, Microsoft Windows, macOS, RISC OS, and most other operating systems.

User community: PHP has a large active online community, which is quite helpful. The official manual includes proper directions on how to utilize the features, so if get stuck you can quickly resolve your issue.

Successful History: because of its fast implementation and wide range of functions. Some of the biggest websites today were built using PHP, such as Wikipedia, which is one of the world's major sources of information on any subject. Followed by Tumblr, Slack, MailChimp, Etsy, and many more.

Content Management Systems: WordPress, the most popular content management system in the world, is written in PHP. PHP is also used to create content management systems like Drupal, Joomla, and Magento. Shopify is also based on PHP.

Web Hosting Platforms: PHP hosting is also compatible with the majority of today's web servers. This contains Apache, IIS, and a slew of additional applications. This may include Lighttpd and Nginx, as well as any web server that can use the FastCGI PHP binary.

PHP OOP support

PHP scripts can be as basic as one-line instructions, or as complicated as complex functions. Some PHP-based websites dynamically produce practically all webpage content. While earlier versions of PHP did not support object-oriented programming, PHP3 included class support, as well as object properties and functions. Similar to a compiled language, developers may construct custom object libraries and import them into multiple PHP sites.


The syntax of PHP is quite similar to those of other programming languages, such as C++, Java, and Perl. PHP hosting, on the other hand, has several proprietary functions, such as MySQL-specific techniques for retrieving entries from a MySQL database.

PHP script execution

Scripting on the server is PHP's most well-known and primary field. To make this work, you will need three things: 1. PHP parser (CGI or server module) 2. Web server 3. Web browser. You will need to set up a web server and link it to a PHP hosting installation. You may view the PHP page through the server and read the PHP program output, with a web browser. If you're just getting started with PHP development, you can run all of these on your local environment.

Example PHP Code:

echo "This is PHP code!";
