PHP (personal home page) and JS (JavaScript) are two programming languages that are generally used in web design. PHP refers to Hypertext Preprocessor, which was defined by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1994. The first thing he used this PHP was to track the number of visits to his online resume.

Many developers like to use this server-side scripting language, which is used to create interactive and dynamic web pages on several distinguished platforms. JS, or fully called Javascript, was developed by Brendan Eich in the year 1995. The name given to it was originally Mocha, and then it was changed to LiveScript, and currently called JavaScript.

The major function of JavaScript is to design web applications and also create responsive websites. You can only combine PHP with HTML, whereas you can combine versatile JS with AJAX, XML, and HTML. In addition, you execute PHP on the server, while you can execute JC on your PC.
