Q: What is PHP?

A: PHP is a server-side, cross-platform, HTML embedded scripting language. It has a syntax familiar to both Perl and C. PHP-enabled web pages are treated just like regular HTML pages and you can create and edit them the same way you normally create regular HTML pages.

Q: How do I install PHP on my domain?
