Are you a PHP/HTML developer who wants to keep developing applications irrespective of the location? Every developer has to upload the files so that he/she can access it from home or any other location, but you won’t have to do it anymore.
PHPAnywhere is a free online service that comes with a real-time syntax code editor that lets you create PHP/HTML applications online without downloading anything at all. It has a build-in FTP explorer, so what does it mean? Instead of having to develop applications and then uploading them using your favorite desktop FTP client, you can now develop and upload your files all from one online destination.

We all know how difficult it can be to first download the file from the server, find and fix the problem in your favorite text editor, and upload it back using FTP tool. But with PHPAnywhere all you have to do is to add your server and start editing the files directly. Note that all connections established are secure and encrypted, so you don’t have to worry about the security.
