PHP Scripting Language

PHP: (Hypertext Preprocessor) is one of the world's most popular scripting languages, originally designed to produce dynamic web pages, often in conjunction with MySQL databases

PHP code is embedded into HTML source code and parsed by a web server that supports the language; such as the servers used by Domain Registration Services.  Here's how PHP code looks at its most basic:

<title>PHP Test</title>
echo "Hello World - this is PHP";

The "echo" command prompts the message to be displayed on the page - but this hardly demonstrates the power of PHP - it's extremely versatile, robust and powers some of the world's largest, busiest and most interactive web sites.


While you may never need to know the ins and outs of how PHP works or ever have to code a single line yourself, what is important to know is many popular web site software applications, such as forums, blogs and shopping carts need PHP to run.

In that respect, Domain Registration Services certainly has you covered as we offer an incredible range of PHP based software applications free of charge with each of our hosting accounts! Just about whatever it is you want to do with your new web site or how you would like to expand on a current site, we likely have a PHP based software application on offer to suit - at no extra cost to you! If we don't have what you're looking for in our bonus software pack, you'll likely be able to download what you need elsewhere; and often free of charge too, and then install it for your site.

Aside from a server needing PHP support to run PHP applications, some of the latest and greatest web software applications also need a recent version of PHP. Some web hosting services run very old versions of PHP which not also limit application compatibility, but may be prone to security threats.

The latest stable version is PHP5, which is the current version with all our hosting packages.
