YII framework – web development
YII is an open source website application development framework written in PHP5. Itsperformance is extremely optimized performance and is suitable for all kinds of projects. As compared to other PHP frameworks, its performance is much higher andhence its popularity and use is continually growing at an increasing rate.iFourTechnolab, India’s leading website development, mobile development and application development company has clients all around the globe and this experience has made us an expert in various technologies. Learning new technologies and applying them very efficiently is what we have mastered in.
The various reasons for which YII framework has been so popular are:
- High performance : The performance is higher compared to most of the other PHP frameworks.

The high number of RPS shows higher performance of YII framework.
