Hi Alpesh,

Your choice of programming, scripting or mark-up language, would ultimately be determined by what you wish to do with it. The majority of internet languages all have different and unique applications that most of the other languages are unable to achieve.

PHP is used to add a functionality to your site that HTML alone can't achieve. PHP can perform all types of calculations. From figuring out what day it is, or what day of the week March 18, 2046 is, to preforming all different types of mathematical equations.

PHP can collect user information - By this I mean, you can let your user directly interact with the script. This can be something really simple, like collecting the temperature from the user that they want to convert from degrees to another format, or it can be more extensive information, like adding their information to an address book, or letting them post on a forum.

PHP can interact with MySQL databases - And in doing this, the possibilities are endless. You can write users information to the database and you can retrieve information from the database. This allows you to create pages on the fly using the contents of the database. You can even do more complex things like setting up a login system, creating a website search feature, or keep your store's product catalogue and inventory online. The opportunities are nearly limitless.

ASP.NET, on the other hand, also has many applications in today’s web development, particularly in building dynamic web sites with constantly updated content, development built around object oriented programming (OOP) or seamless integration of different applications (sometimes situated on different servers) into one single web page. Moreover, ASP.NET still offers support to develop in HTML (hypertext mark-up language) for browsers which don’t fully support modern features. This ensures great compatibility when developing in the ASP.NET programming environment.

I guess at the end of the day it all depends on what you want to do with it.

I hope this helps.
