Web protocol HTTP is a stateless protocol and each page is completely independent of all others. To simplify, without the PHPSESSID cookie, server has no way of knowing that same user has just arrived from one page to another. It is same way as introducing yourself again and again to your friends whenever you meet them as they keep forgetting who you are. PHPSESSID is a great little help to overcome this situation on websites.

Another way of resolving this situation is to create random "session ID" (PHPSESSID) and carry it from page to page but it is annoying to see in the URL.
