Why PHP?

In order to answer this question let's go back in time to study the facts that PHP brings to the table. During the invention of the web, there was a need for server side programming to enable Browser get back the request and get it processed with the help of service design process code. previously when the web was invented the only language that modern web browsers could understand is HTML. Browsers can only understand HTML and this seems to be the presentation layer or the view layer for displaying information or any kind of text, for the browser. PHP is known as personalized home pages, which means that it supports server side processing through the use of PHP syntax, and provides back HTML.

 A server is needed to process PHP statements, and the resulting process output will be HTML which is given back to the browser as a part of the response request. Let us first understand how the interaction happens between web browser and web server. 

 When we type www.google.com in the web browser, and hit enter a request goes to the DNS server which locate IP address for the Google homepage, when the server is found the request is passed to it. The server processes the request and provides back HTML. this HTML is then passed back to the browser by the internet. The browser processes the HTML statement and the resulting page is displayed to the user. If the request passed by the browser requests a PHP page, then the request is processed by the PHP server side engine, and the resulting HTML is then passed to the browser. The browser then displays the HTML page as a resulting request and renders back the HTML, to the user. in this way a PHP request page is handled. And the webpage is displayed to the user, as a response to the request.

So now we know how PHP handles a browser request, and what details are passed between the user browser and the server.

 PHP is present in all forms of the internet, there are many content management systems that are designed using PHP, such as WordPress, Magento, Drupal and so on. PHP has been the backbone of web development and server side processing when it comes to display in web pages. even the first server to be present on the web handling request on the world wide web was a PHP based server. It is because of PHP that server side processing came into LimeLight. PHP is present in many different forms that is helping web developers and designers to create inspiring web pages and web applications that Power the today's modern web. There are also many PHP based frameworks that are invented to support modern web development, and  enable single page application designing. such as laravel, which is a PHP based web application framework that is popular among web developers and Web Designer like.
