What is HTML?

HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. It's a language used for designing the web pages and their structure, allowing for creating structured sections, paragraphs, headlines, links, etc.

In other words, HTML creates the bones of the website that make the website's skeleton.

Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea of an Internet-based hypertext system, resulting in the invention of HTML. Thus, the first version of HTML was published in 1991, with 18 HTML tags. Since its creation, that language consistently gained the attention of software engineers, and with each new version, more tags were added. Today, these tags reached the number of 140. However, some of them, with time, get obsolete and are not supported by modern browsers.

One important thing to note is that HTML is not a programming language; it is a formatting language. Unlike XML, where you define the tags. In HTML, these are predefined.

The HTML documents are files with a .html or .htm extension, and you can view that file in your web browser (such as Google Chrome, Safari, or Mozilla Firefox). The web browser reads the HTML file and renders its content to display it to the user.

The HTML is used to create static pages. However, you cannot apply logic in HTML structure. You have to make separate web pages, even if they have the same web element structure. Sometimes, the old browsers do not accept the newer HTML tags, or some browsers slowly adopt the new features, which creates a bit problem.

What is PHP?

If you are related to web development, you must know the PHP language and its importance.

PHP is a widely used open-source scripting language; it stands for " PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor," Its scripts are processed and executed on the server.

Today, almost 20 million websites and applications on the internet are developed using the PHP language, and the number is still increasing. Most of these websites and applications are related to social sites (Facebook, Digg), blogs and CMS (WordPress, Joomla), E-commerce (PrestaShop, OpenCart, Magento), and other popular websites like Yahoo and Wikipedia.

In 1994, Danish-Canadian programmer Rasmus Lerdorf created that language. Especially designed and suited for web development.

The PHP documents are files with a .php extension. The PHP file can contain text, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP code. That file is executed on the server, resulting in plain HTML on the browser.

After its creation, that language gained popularity. You can generate dynamic web content and create, open, read, write, delete, and close files on the server. Moreover, you can collect form data, send and receive cookies, and encrypt the data.

It currently runs on various platforms and is compatible with all the servers and databases.


Undoubtedly, both languages are essential, and as a programmer, you must understand both languages. Both are open source and free, but both languages work in different domains.

HTML is the markup language used to design the webpages and their structure. But it's a formatting language, not a programming language. It's a client-side language, and you cannot create dynamic web pages. It makes static web pages like the Microsoft Word document. You have to add JavaScript or the backend language PHP for dynamic functionality.

On the other hand, PHP is the scripting, server-side language embedded in HTML, highly adopted for its dynamic functionality, and compatible with the databases and servers. The PHP file can contain text, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP code. That file is executed on the server, resulting in plain HTML on the browser.
