How PHP Development Companies are Still Ruling the Roost

PHP Technology

Do you know how many websites are there in this world? Excluding those in the alien and other dimensional worlds.
Internet is a difficult thing to quantify.

The best guess of internet geniuses puts the figure to a little over 1 billion websites today. PHP is used by approximately 85% of all websites whose server-side language is known.
Websites now are more dynamic and less static and PHP makes it easy for PHP Development Companies
to develop websites for enhanced form of user engagement.
PHP or Hypertext Preprocessor is a hugely popular server-side scripting language. It is also the most
popular resource available for creating database-enabled dynamic websites. And you know what – It’s free!!

The Birth & Rise of PHP

PHP was born in 1994 to a single parent – the Danish/Greenlandic/Canadian programmer Rasmus Lerdorf. It was made public in June 1995. The abbreviation PHP came from its original name Personal Home Page tools. In 1997, it reentered the public domain as PHP/F1 2.0. Israeli programmers Suraski and Gutmans rewrote the code base of the original version and PHP 3 was launched.
In 2000, PHP 4 came out incorporating a scripting engine named Zend Engine designed by the same duo. The latest version is 7.3 released in December 2018.

In almost two decades, PHP has grown phenomenally; still going strong.
Did you know Wordpress, Facebook and Wikipedia use PHP in their technology stack?

Do We Still Need PHP?

PHP has overtaken languages like ASP.Net and Ruby and is still being loved by developers around the world. Some of the reasons are:

  • Open Source

The quality of PHP being an open source platform makes it possible for everyone to collaborate and work on it. Probably the fascination of the technical community is because of its “free” and “available to everyone” nature. PHP is developed and maintained by a growing group of developers which helps in creating abundant extension libraries.

  • Quick, Quicker

PHP is appreciated for being one of the fastest developer languages in the world. Developers who work with complex structures and problems have an inclination towards it. PHP enables the developers to work swiftly in less time.

  • Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

If you meet a developer on the way, chances are that he or she will have some connection with the C language. C is the building block of all developing languages. PHP employs C-like syntax making it programmer friendly. So it’s easy for developers to pick up and start creating website scripts.

  •  Saves Money

PHP is a cost-effective development solution and can operate on both Linux and Windows servers. As part of bringing down development costs, development companies and developers prefer Linux servers as they have zero licensing fee. A PHP application developed in one OS can be easily executed in other operating systems also.

  • Practicality

From its inception, PHP was created with practicality in mind. Lerdorf’s original intention while creating this language was not to design an entirely new language, but to resolve a problem that had no seemingly available solution. Much of PHP’s early evolution focused on the utility to the user than improving the language itself. The resulting effect is a language that allows users, even with a minimum knowledge, to build powerful applications.

Our Cutting Edge Development with PHP Development

Our PHP Development Team is simply passionate about PHP. They come to work every day with a resolution to make things better with PHP. If  you dream of a web project that will revolutionize the world as we know it, then as a leading PHP Development Company, Spericorn is the team you need to talk to. Let me tell you why.

PHP Development Company

You might feel like we are blowing our own trumpet. But seriously, there is no other way to talk about it. We have been in the business for quite some time and are specialists when it comes to web development. Imagine a SWAT team with high-powered agile technology. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to application development just to make sure we touched our basics. Our customer service and development ethics are exemplary and our ever growing client base tells the rest of the story. These are some of the very few things that set us apart from other PHP Development Companies around.

Over the past years, PHP has grown to be the go-to platform for most web development projects. Some of our thinking on this subject is as follows.

PHP Handles Traffic Like No Other

We have been developing web applications with extremely high traffic (over 200,000 visitors per day) and they have been performing well. There is a wealth of solid frameworks available in PHP with incredible communities and support.

Fact: Facebook was first created on a LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP).

As a PHP Development Company what we really strive to do is not to make your product perfect, but to understand your requirements and respect your budget. Then, we support you all the way to launch it and then plan next steps.

Developers Plentiful

We see a lot of PHP developers around and are plenty compared to developers in other technologies like RoR or Python. So, why not use them. If you are a large company and can afford RoR developers, then it might be the way to go. It is true for some other technologies and frameworks as well. But then your flexibility with such development will be limited and your reliance with that development team or developer will be more. We would say get a decent PHP Development Company and go ahead with your out-of-the-world application. If something goes wrong, you can always find another company or development team with the same caliber or more for better price.

Ignore the Negativity

Our best advice for you is to listen only to the people who thinks positive about development in general and the variety of technologies present, not just the one they work with. In fact, there are a lot of good programming languages and frameworks, but as a PHP Development Company, we find PHP to the best entry point. We don’t see a reason to explore something else when PHP can deliver the best for you. Well, unless you give us a few millions and insist.
