Did you know? Before being christened as Hypertext Processor, PHP was known as Personal Home Page? If you answer this question with a yes, fair enough! But if your answer is a 'no', then you are probably one of the may people who have heard and read a lot about PHP and still don't have any core knowledge about the language.

Are you interested in learning more about offshore PHP web development and the PHP language itself? Then, here's a quick wrap up of the most interesting facts about PHP, that will help you understand this server-side scripting language better.

PHP, officially known as Hypertext Preprocessor was developed by Rasmus Lerdof in the year 1995.

  1. Rasmus had originally developed PHP to maintain his Personal Home Pages (PHP) and replace an erroneous set of Perl scripts. Thus, the language was initially known as Personal Home Page, but was soon re-christened to sound more authentic and programming-oriented.
  2. PHP is the most widely used open source server-side scripting language, meant to render interactive and dynamic web pages. Today, PHP is installed on more than 1 Million web servers and more than 20 million websites.
  3. PHP is a very popular language. Today, most big names in the internet arena have PHP is their backdrop. Some of the major websites that are running on PHP are Facebook, Wikipedia, Photobucket, Digg and Yahoo. So, the next time you browse through Facebook or Digg it!, you know the technology doing the trick behind these sites.
  4. PHP is compatible with almost every major operating system. Some of the OS that support PHP are MAC OS X, Linux, Microsoft Windows and RISC OS. This unparalleled support over major operating systems makes PHP the most flexible programming language.
  5. HTML is the secret behind PHP's popularity. The fact that PHP can be directly embedded into HTML coding, makes it a hit amongst PHP developers.
  6. PHP scripts are great at multitasking. A PHP script created within a code is capable of reading and writing files, querying databases, talking to remote servers and creating images. So much, in just a single script!
  7. There are about 5 million PHP developers in the world! Yes! You read it right! 5 Million! So, the next time you hire PHP developer, make sure you choose one in 5 million!

Interesting! Isn't it? PHP is a highly functional, server-side scripting language that empowers developers to render highly flexible and scalable applications. These fun-facts about PHP are surely going to increase your know-how about the language and will make you capable of speaking in clear terms the next time you have conversation with your developer.
