The Superior and Best Scripting language PHP

Updated on October 2, 2011

Best scripting language

Do you want to build your own website? If yes then I want to suggest you to use the PHP language because it is very simple to use and does not take lots of time on loading. Now come to the point!! PHP stands for “Hypertext Pre-Processor” or “Personal Home Page”. Basically it is a server side HTML scripting programming language. You can create both Static and Dynamic websites by the help of PHP. The main best thing of PHP is that if you know the HTML language then it is very easy and simple to understand PHP. You can create and edit web pages in the same way as you normally do in HTML pages.

PHP language is one of the most widely used scripting languages for web, internet, e-commerce and business to business projects. The power of PHP language is that it is cross-platform and runs everywhere such as it easily runs on Linux; Windows based operating system, on Mac computers, on Solaris and etc. apart from this it runs on several web servers such as Apache, Microsoft IIS and etc.

Most of the computer user and website developers get shocked when they listen that PHP runs 5 to 20 times faster than the Java. It allows users to develop very complex web and E-commerce applications in very short period of time. We can say that PHP is the best scripting programming language compared to other scripting languages.

The PHP pages are saved as the .php extension. It is absolutely true that PHP is a robust, server side, open source scripting language apart from this it is very flexible and actually fun to learn. You can also create dynamic web pages using it. You can use MYSQL as a database. MYSQL is also an open source SQL database server.
