When we look around, we see a lot of websites use PHP based software. So does a lot of hosting providers. LAMP based hosting packages are very cheap and affordable. The leader in the website building business, WordPress has PHP in its core. Let us says PHP runs more than 50 % of the internet.

Is it the ease of use or ease of learning making PHP this popular ?

I will say the best thing at the moment is it is established, easy to use and is available everywhere. That gives comfort and kills the extra effort. Look at Discourse, it is a very impressive software. But it need Ruby on Rails, not written in PHP. If it was a PHP software, things would have gone a different way for forums.

I think it is the hosting providers who are making it famous by providing it out of the box. It is really a challenge these days to try something in another coding language and would need a shared hosting package to work.

A lot of people are doing this

This is correct. Either you do PHP or forget about using shared hosting

As an experienced developer, wiring in PHP is almost as easy as writing in plain English (for me being a native anyway 😁). I learned PHP years ago and use it extensively. I'm writing an application for work right now actually.

Nice to know. Are you using any PHP framework for that ?
