Hi Alpesh,
It's hard to pick a 'best' language as each of them have their own pros and cons.

PHP

Pros
Quick and easy to learn
It works well with databases, file systems, images, et cetera
Regular expression support
Extensive database support
Open Source
Familiar syntax
Free Support

Cons
Not often used
Existing database API's hard-wire DB vendor names into code.
Ugly and unpredictable type system.

ASP.NET

Pros
Visual Studio
You can use C# in Non-Web Applications
Code Compiler
Arguably more dynamic
.net framework has tons of built in features which can be looked at as a pro or a con.

Cons
Not Open Source
Harder to Learn
Windows Platform Only

That's mostly what I know about these languages, it's really up to you to choose which language is best for the task. Please be aware that you cannot use these languages with Yola for security reasons.

Hope this helps!
