PHP language

PHP language, initially called Personal Homepage but now a recursive acronym for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, is a scripting language embedded in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) for web pages. It’s used to develop web servers.

Brands use the PHP language to send emails with the PHP mail function, which requires the sender to fill in three mandatory fields: receiver’s name and email address, subject, and message (where each line must be up to 70 characters). The sender’s name and email address, CC, and BCC fields are optional.
