PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, popularly referred to as PHP, is a famous server-side scripting language, which is used to set up dynamic websites with interactive components such as message boards, school websites or social networks. In comparison with static HTML sites, a PHP-driven website can serve different web content to each user under the same URL. Considering the fact that PHP-based applications can be managed through a Control Panel, which you can log into from any web browser, you will not need to have any web design experience or practical experience whatsoever in order to administer a PHP site. The fact that hundreds of millions of websites all over the world are created with PHP is indicative of the popularity and the ease of use of the language. You only ought to check whether the web server on which your site is hosted supports the very same PHP version as the one that you used while building the website.
