All the languages and scripting languages that you have listed are all part of web development.

HTML - (Hyper Text Markup Language) is the structuring language that is used to structure web pages. It sets up the basic structure of the web page and contains the content that is displayed on the web page. HTML5 is the current standard for HTML markup for web pages.

CSS - (Cascading Style Sheets) is used to style the web pages. CSS is a scripting language that is used to style the appearance of our web pages. In the old days styling was added sometimes referred to as embedded to the HTML markup which made the pages very difficult to maintain. It was determined quite a few years ago that the styling of web pages would be handled by a separate language, thus CSS was born and developed. we are currently using CSS3 for most web page styling and a lot of functionality has been added to CSS over the years.

PHP - (Hypertext PreProcessor) - is a server side scripting language that is use to perform general purpose programming for web development. Normally PHP is used to perform database integration for dynamic web development. PHP code is normally embedded into HTML pages to allow portions or all of the page content to be loaded from a database and displayed on the page.

JavaScript - is one of the three core languages of the web and works hand in hand with HTML and CSS. It allows for user interaction of the web page and the web user.

Obviously this is a very high level explanation, but as you should be able to see, these languages are all used to develop for the web.

At a minimum you will need to understand HTML to design web pages, of course if you want to be able to style that page, you will need to understand and utilize CSS. So those two will be needed to make minimal web pages. Understanding PHP and JavaScript will make your pages much more dynamic and have the ability to have user interaction.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need any clarifications.

Usually, all of these languages are used when creating a website. If you are wondering which one to use on your website - it depends on what you want to achieve on the website. If you wish to create a great web design and few animations, then HTML/CSS/Javascript can be enough for you. If you want to have a database and a lot of different calculations or forms, then PHP may come in handy. In most cases all of these languages are used when creating a website.

For web development you need to combine all of this things because everyone has its own benefits. PHP is used for server side scripting. HTML/CSS is used for frontend designing and Javascript/Jquery is used for client side scripting. So, for a web project you will need to combine all of these languages and achieve your goals.

All the languages written here are the part of the website development. To make the website in PHP, you have to do design the front end in HTML/CSS and use JavaScript as well.

HTML/CSS are the front end languages and PHP is server side language.


If you want to create the website only in HTML then you can create that as well but most websites in HTML are simple content websites

Hi there,

HTML/CSS is used for frontend designing and JavaScript/Jquery is used for client-side scripting. Mostly such languages are used on Static website or smaller websites. I am not focused on mark-up and style sheet languages, like HTML and CSS. They are essential to know if you do web development, but they're also not programming languages.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development. It is far more widely used by web developers to create websites and web applications. On the other hand, Word Press is a free open-source Content Management System (CMS) based on PHP and MySql.
I will recommend going through below development or programming languages for your web development work:-

PHP
Java
Python
JavaScript

Thanks & Regards
Web Development

As what those replies mention, PHP is a server-side programming language and the other three are client-side programming languages. It is all depend on what you want to do with your website, but basically if you do no need to communicate with database then HTML, CSS and Javascript is enough to design a website. Hope this will help you. :)

Both Php and html/css are required to develop a website. Html/css is used to design the websites and php is used when dynamic websites are developing with database

Hello Fayeseom,
It depends on the terminal effect. The approach to sentence a website is to original look at how it resembles and knows. Whether all the links are working, whether the design theme is consonant and whether it serves the mission.

It seems not imply if you have done it with code or Wordpress.

PHP is best but you need HTML and CSS as well for webdevelopment.

HTML Used to mark up the content on the web. It provides basic structure for websites. And add special meaning to the web content by the use of its tags.

PHP can be used to connect to a database. To encrypt, create, delete, modify the content. Manage files, and to grant user acess to the database and many more. Importantly it is executed in the servers only, results are displayed in browsers.

These are the purpose of the languages. If you want to design a dynamic website with redirections from form field, maintain data in servers …etc then you need server side scripting languages like PHP.

I think if you want to work as a front you should learn everything except PHP, back-end should know everything. At least basics. Wordpress is seasy to learn if you want to create simple fast website. For me react is hard to learn. Just getting old :)

I don't like WordPress at all. When you create a website in HTML, CSS etc. loading speed is better. There are a plugins issues and many more problems. don't go for WordPress unless it's a simple website.
