Self-referentially short for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, an open source, server-side, HTML embedded scripting language used to create dynamic Web pages. In an HTML document, PHP script (similar syntax to that of Perl or C ) is enclosed within special PHP tags. Because PHP is embedded within tags, the author can jump between HTML and PHP (similar to ASP and Cold Fusion) instead of having to rely on heavy amounts of code to output HTML. And, because PHP is executed on the server, the client cannot view the PHP code. PHP can perform any task that any CGI program can do, but its strength lies in its compatibility with many types of databases.

Linux Web Hosting is probably the most used server operating system in the market. Most web developers love Linux because it will support PHP and MySQL perfectly.
Windows Web Hosting is used if your choice of programming language is ASP.NET or if you need to run MSSQL databases. As a rule we normally suggest that unless you need these features it's advisable to select a Linux based hosting plan.
