What is PHP web hosting?

PHP 是 "Hypertext Preprocessor"的縮寫,是一種電腦程式語言。這種開放原始碼的語言可以用來開發動態應用程式。如今,許多內容管理系統 (例如 WordPressPrestaShop ) 都是使用 PHP 的框架系統 (Symfony、Laravel 或 Zend) 所開發。PHP 在網路中廣泛的使用,並且有很多 網頁代管服務

While many versions of PHP have been released since 1994, the language only really took shape in 1997. Two students, Andi Gutmans and Zeev Suraski then conceived what was at the time the most refined version of the code (PHP 3) and founded Zend Technologies. Today, 25 years later, the seventh iteration of PHP is available on most web hosting platforms where you may benefit from all its new functionalities. Not only has PHP 7 received significant new improvements and optimizations over its predecessors, it has also considerably improved loading times for web pages.

Which advantages are there in choosing PHP web hosting?

PHP web hosting services are often compatible with all the new versions of PHP. Currently, the supported versions are typically PHP 5.6 as well as each declination of PHP 7

More control

To web developers, PHP is somewhat of a comfort language and allows for a great degree of control. For this reason, they do not need to be typing thousands of lines code to generate a new web page. Instead, they’re able to automatize a large part of the process in order to save significant amounts of time when deploying a new website.

More performance

As stated earlier, the loading time for web pages has been decreasing with each new optimization of the PHP language. PHP performs a lot better in the context of web applications than languages such as Java. And as it has been proven countless times, faster loading websites have a lot more potential for user retention.

PHP web hosting is now more than an essential part of the web ecosystem; it has become the way to go for any web developer wanting a simple and intuitive access to both the PHP programming language and databases such as MySQL. PHP is quite a simple language to learn, even for inexperienced developers. Another advantage of choosing PHP is the fact that it’s entirely free, just like the other software components the LAMP stack is comprised of (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP). Nowadays, most websites have chosen PHP because of its many advantages and its exceptional performance.
