Create a dynamic site with PHP

PHP is the benchmark!

Create a fully customised site

PHP is widely documented, easy to use and free, and will enable you to generate dynamic pages in just a few lines of code.
Using the templates, you can design personalised pages and put them online very easily.

Bring your forum to life

Create a forum easily with all the services your community needs, such as managing RSS feeds in order to track and record exchanges and posts.

Perform operations on time

Send customised forms automatically, classify and analyse information. Use the current time and date to time stamp pages and comments.

For example:

Using today's date...

<?php $cejour = date('d'); echo 'Aujourd\'hui, nous sommes le : ' . $cejour; ?>

Send emails from your site

Use the mail function...

For example:

Send an email that will not be considered as spam

<?php $headers ='From:'."\n"; $headers .='Reply-To:'."\n"; $headers .='Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"'."\n"; $headers .='Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit'; mail('', 'Sujet', 'Message contenu de l email', $headers); ?>

Use PHP at OVH:

Versions and updates:

  • Available versions: 5.5, 5.6, 7
  • Choice of versions: select the PHP version you want directly via your .ovhconfig file. Find out more.
  • Auto Update: PHP is updated automatically by OVH on your web hosting. If there are significant changes between 2 versions, you can choose not to receive the update if your site is incompatible with this update.

Go further: Customise the use of PHP and Apache:

  • Choice of version: PHP 5.5, PHP 5.6 or PHP 7
  • Use URL rewriting when you want and improve your SEO.
  • Activate Ioncube
  • Password protect access to selected site directories
  • Save time with a Framework: Use pre-developed packs with functions instead of making them yourself!
