Web development is a vast and complex field. No two websites have similar look and feel. This is because of a group of programming or coding languages working behind the scene that delivers text, pictures, audio and video on your screen. Depending on client requirements and the scale of the project, a web developer may employ one or more frameworks for client side and server side coding - both proprietary and open source.
Web developers generally prefer open source development tools as these are available under free license. PHP web development is one of the best, most popular and widely used platforms for developing dynamic websites. Powering over 250 million websites (more than 40%) and installed on more than 2 million servers, PHP is the most versatile of all open source technologies.
The following qualities make PHP the ideal platform to deliver all sorts of websites - from a single page static website to highly interactive multiple page website.
- free software that is extendible and constantly evolving
- imperative, object-oriented, procedural and reflective
- an ideal scripting language for server-side web development
- most suitable for building dynamic web pages and applications
- similar to most high-level languages like C, C++, Java and Perl in syntax
- platform independent, i.e. it runs on almost all platforms
- simple enough for even HTML coders to understand and integrate
- technically superior and secure and it constantly updated for security and bug fixes
- the most popular Apache HTTP Server module (as mod_php)
- an Internet-aware system that allows access to FTP servers, database servers and SQL libraries such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, etc.
- Helps in rapid application development (RAD) by providing building blocks and design structure through various software frameworks
Since PHP is free software, web developers are able to offer highly competitive rates. Webcorsa, a dynamic web design and development company offers services such as open source development India, PHP Development India and PHP Web Development India.
