75% of websites, including Facebook, Wikipedia, WordPress and Yahoo use PHP for web development. Join the party
PHP is an open source, server side language that lets you create both static and dynamic websites.
It powers some of the biggest websites on the Internet and is responsible for more than 35% of generated web traffic.

- Suitable for either an one person blog or a massive million hits a month portal
- Highly customizable, thanks to a ton of libraries
- Easy to scale
