PHP is a powerfully flexible and widely trusted webserver scripting language.
PHP is a server-side scripting language. PHP code is the brains behind countless websites and web apps; once written, PHP websites may be run by an estimated 77.5% of all the webservers on the planet .
PHP is the language with which we write algorithms - this programmed algorithmic logic makes our websites interactive, dynamic and scalable.
Dynamic Content: PHP allows us to drive dynamic content into your website. For example, we create pages which display different content based on user input, such as a search results page, or a page that displays certain information from a database based-upon a variable in the URL that called the web page.
Server-Side Processing: PHP scripts execute on the webserver. This means that it is a very powerful server, and not the user's browser, that is tasked with processing data and performing complex calculations. This reduces the load on a user's device or computer and ensures that a Sub@omic website is not only responsive but lightning quick.
Integration with Databases: PHP provides with a means of integrating with a MySQL database. The scalability of our websites comes from this ability to store to and retrieve website content from a database - in essence, we write the script for a webpage just once and then work with the retrieved database content to create the experience of tens, hundreds or many thousands of individual web pages.
Customisation: PHP allows us to create custom functions in addition to drawing from a library of more than a thousand built-in functions. This twin ability makes it easy to create complex algorithms and features, such as user authentication and authorisation, without needing to figure-out everything from scratch.
Open-Source: PHP is open-source software, which means it is free for us to use and is not governed by any corporate or boardroom agenda. This shared ownership model makes PHP a cost-effective solution for creating independent General Purpose, Special Purpose and All Purpose websites.
Overall, PHP is a powerful language that provides a range of features and functionality that can contribute to a powerful independent website. It allows Sub@omic to create dynamic content, perform server-side processing, integrate with databases and personalise your website in a cost-effective way.
