PHP or Hyper Text Processor is most often deployed on the server side.

Languages such as Perl and C too are used as server side scripts.But PHP has gained more popularity due to its feature of offering dynamic website content. Another important advantage of PHP is that , its codes can be embedded in HTML pages. When a user requests for a webpage from the server,the PHP is embedded in the HTML code where as its juts the opposite case with Perl where the HTML is produced by Perl code. PHP offers dynamic content to the webpage enabling it to look more cleaner and readable.


PHP is also well known for its quality of performance. This being an Open source language, developers from across the world have helped in optimizing the language better than any other.Due to its combination with MySQL database its performance gets even more improved and users get a one of a kind experience.
