PHP originally stood for personal home page, but is now known as hypertext preprocessor. This refers to the server-side scripting language generally used in designing a web page. Basically, this is considered vital because it can already be directly incorporated into HTML without need of another data processing program. As such, it simplifies the webpage-making process.
In particular, InMotion makes use of PHP version 4 or 5 for its phpList hosting, which already forms part of its web hosting services. A phpList refers to the open-source newsletter software, which has become popular because of its great potential as an online marketing tool. With this, you can regularly update your clients and visitors on your new products and services, including special offers or promos, as well as conduct online surveys. This usually comes with lots of features to choose from, such as online tracking, scheduled publications, email templates, language translations and other options.
With InMotion’s phpList hosting, you can easily manage from a centralized website your mailing lists, even when it runs to a thousand or more subscribers, and consequently carry out a web-wide marketing strategy. Although, generally speaking, they limit sending out of e-mails to 250 per hour in order to prevent spam, you can make a special request to increase it, if your needs require the same.
Plus, it’s easy to install by following these simple steps outlined by InMotion’s How To Install phpList Tutorials. If you encounter problems, do not hesitate to call on their technical support staff for 24/7 help and assistance.

Then, continue in completing the setting up of InMotion’s phpList installation, as well as its configuration, by following the same easy steps provided in InMotion’s phpList Educational Channels webpage.
