From the official PHP website, “PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML”. PHP is used to add dynamic function to otherwise static web sites. A dynamic website is one that allows user interaction which includes almost all of the most popular web sites. Facebook was coded in PHP, as was Wikipedia.
PHP can take a dull website and spice it up by adding custom contact forms and all types of dynamic functions. It can be used to create applications where your visitors can have their own accounts and interact with your site. Another great way to utilize PHP is to create a custom, time-saving application for your business. Sure, there are CRMs and all types of scripts out there that you can try to work with but your business is unique and a custom tailored application, to perform and automate company duties, can be a huge time and money saver.
One of the beauties of having an online application developed in PHP, is that it can be accessed by any computer with internet access and requires no software installation. This can be a huge time saver and allows mobility that is unparalleled by Desktop applications. Additionally, applications developed in PHP have complete cross-platform support. Any system that can access a website, will be able to access your application so no matter if you have a Windows computer, an Apple computer such as a MacBook or even if you’re browsing on your Wii’s web broswer, you will be able to utilize the application.
