syntax highlighting in emacs

in macOS edited January 2014
I was using a pc to get to my webserver recently, using putty as an ssh client. i opened up a php document in emacs and turned on syntax highlighting to check the code, and much to my suprise, it was in actual color instead of just having the tags highlighted or making fucntions bold like in os x. is there any way i can get this functionality through the terminal or is there another terminal app that can handle this?
