PHPCodeOnline is a free tool which also does not ask you to register. Just visit the website and start practicing code online. When you visit PHPCodeOnline, you will see a simple code editor with two buttons saying "parsePHP()" at the top and bottom of editing area.
Before you start, you should know that <?php and ?> codes have already been added. You can see at the above and below the text editing area. So, you do not need to start and end your php code with these PHP start and end tags.
I tested various beginner level codes and it worked find. It is very helpful for those who have just started learning PHP or thinking to learn. This tool will not help if you are thinking to run advance level codes like file handling, Database management, and Curl. Another disadvantage of the tool is that it cannot parse PHP tags. It means you are bound to use only PHP code. This is because of security reasons.
