PHP Hosting options from Storm

PHP hosting provides support for the PHP open source scripting language. PHP code can be run on both Linux and Windows hosting packages, however is best suited to Linux environments. As a scripting language it enables web developers to create dynamic data driven websites that function very flexibly when compared to websites that have been developed using simple static HTML web pages. It is also the base for popular web applications that you may already be using including the WordPress Content Management System.

PHP tends to be the server-side scripting language of choice for developers that have not gone down the Microsoft career path. Stemming from the open-source movement, PHP offers good interaction with MySQL databases which when combined allow developers to create powerful website applications that can provide a high level of functionality, scalability and reliability. Facebook is a good example of such a large-scale system build upon PHP and MySQL technologies. Being open source means it is often favoured for such large scale applications due to the vast savings on license costs as can often be an issue with other development technologies.

PHP was originally designed to run on Linux and consequently tends to run slightly better on a Linux based operating system. As such we recommend either our Linux Plus, Ultimate or any of our Linux Reseller packages for PHP hosting. Although low cost, these Linux hosting packages provide you with the features needed to support the hosting of a PHP based website along with support for MySQL databases. However, if you have a distinct requirement for a Windows-only feature then you can still choose one of our Windows based ASP Plus, Ultimate or Windows Reseller hosting packages which too support PHP in addition to Microsoft based technologies such as ASP, ASP.NET and SQL Server.
