As your website developers, our goal is to ensure that your website fully and functionally represents your brand. Using the latest and best PHP development practices, we will create your website from the ground up so that you stand out among the vast sea of competition.
PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) is a widely-used, open source, general-purpose programming language that’s specifically suited for the web. It’s built up from the C programming language and uses idiosyncratic HTML-like tags (or sigils) to contain its code. It’s mostly used server-side, so it runs on your web server software, which is customarily going to serve HTML to your visitors.
There are many reasons why we use PHP for server-side programming with our clients. Aside from being a free language with no licensing fees for your business, this programming language can interact with many different database languages, so setting up your website is quick, easy, and relatively low-cost. PHP also has very good online documentation with a good framework of functions in place making the language relatively easy to learn and very well supported online. All of this means that we can create a tailored website, quickly and efficiently so that you can focus on your launch strategy to get your brand and message out there.
The Benefits of PHP Development for Your Business
The best thing in using PHP is that it’s user-friendly for newcomers while offering many advanced features for professional programmers. Although PHP’s development is focused on server-side scripting, you can do so much more with it. Essentially, anything that you could want to do on a web server, you can do with PHP. You can create a blog, a full-fledged software-as-a-service application, write a script to process some data in a few seconds, write a complicated set of scripts to launch a software business – the possibilities are endless.
There are lots of reasons to know and love PHP. But, the most valid, driving reason we choose PHP is simply because it is used and runs absolutely everywhere. This means that you can count on it wherever you are. Because it runs everywhere and is relatively hassle-free to work with, a lot of very popular software is written in PHP, including WordPress, and many tools like Joomla, Drupal, Magento, and more are all running PHP on the server. Plus, there are more PHP application frameworks than you could ever count, including Symfony and CodeIgnitor.
Some other great benefits of using PHP include:
Dynamism – PHP does HTML rendering and programming easier than almost any other language, with dynamism baked right in. So, it’s pretty simple to change HTML to PHP. Most web servers are already configured to take care of this process for you.
Object-Orientation – The introduction of object-orientation has developed over the years and is now fully-realized in PHP. Few languages have as much Java-like OOP practice than PHP. PHP comes with a single and widely-loved package manager, called Composer, that makes for an easy process of pulling in other well-written and well-maintained libraries in PHP.
Speed – PHP has evolved in interesting ways and gotten a lot faster over the years. It has become a pretty fully-featured Java-like object-oriented language. It’s gaining easy abstractions for functional programming making it the hot scripting language developers want in this modern age. It also continues to grow a great set of tools.
Community – PHP has a huge community. It’s a learning-friendly scripting language with a lot of great qualities that are routinely put into practice and put to the test.
