    What are your criteria to make that decision?

    They are both good tools.

    PHP is still in development.
    ASP hasn't really moved since ASP.NET came along 10 years ago.

      PHP has a giant community behind it, actively providing new methods & development tools. This is one of the best indicators of how to go.

      I don't like either model, really. But that's my personal bias. ASP is doggy, and PHP seems to be the Troglodyte of programming environments. But PHP is by far more widely accessible, with better community support.

    Practically the only reason for learning ASP anymore is if you need to work on legacy systems. You'd be better off learning something like VB.NET if you are interested in Microsoft technology for the web.

      Everything has its own importance and it is same for programming language also. ASP and PHP both have its own importance so that we can not say that which one is best but we can say that which one is more reliable and easy or which one have more features. According to me ASP have more features and it is reliable also though it is little bit hard.

      I prefer php, and in my experience (little with ASP) if there is an error, it shuts down the whole script/entire domain because of it, where as php will just feed an error and still display the rest of your page.

      And of course I agree with the above regarding php.

        Classic ASP is an outdated technology. It was pretty good 10 years ago when you could write thin front ends to COM+ objects for web apps. Now, it's far behind more current technologies like ASP.NET, PHP and Ruby on Rails.

              Depends on many factors:
              1. Learning curve. If you know any one of these systems, then go with it. Otherwise go with the language which is the closest to you currently know. If you know Java go with JSP, etc.
              2. Hosting. It is easier to find free hosting services with PHO. Now a days a lot of sites are offering free ASP.net too.

                PHP will own ASP any day when it comes to learning curve or hosting ease.Though I'm more inclined towards JSP.Go for PHP as most of the frameworks out there,which you would work with or build plugin/apps for are PHP based for e.g. Wordpress,fb,joomla..

    It depends on what hosting you may already have.
    If you have a linux hosting then go for php. If you have windows then go for ASP.NET.
    In terms of pricing I think you will pay the same for a project developed in php compared to one in ASP.NET.
    Anyway if you go for ASP then go for the .NET one, classic ASP is old and is not really used that much anymore.

    PHP is really nice to implement web site quickly. No doubt about it.
    If your system is getting bigger and bigger and needs to maintain source codes, then ASP or even JSP is a good solution because it provides MVC Model 2 Architecture so as to be able to organize systems by front-end, middle-layer(controller), and back-end.

    Every programmer has hard time on updating source codes for maintenance once after the system is big and complicated. I hope this helps.

      As per my experience ASP is best programming language.ASP is an easy way to begin creating Web applications. To process user input on the Web server with CGI applications, a programming language such as Perl or C must be learned. It can Provide to programmers a common means of accessing framework features, regardless of programming language. Server-side scripts cannot be readily copied because only the result of the script is returned to the browser; users cannot view the script commands that created the page they are viewing.

    PHP is the way to go. Avoid ASP. I have seen big sites powered by ASP and they all fail on huge traffic. Having your servers powered by Microsoft OS can lead to bad things. And to those of you who have linux and also support asp all I can say it's that a wolf in sheep clothing is still a wolf.

    I have never used ASP, but I do use ASP.NET along with C# and Visual Studio.

    I also build apps in PHP/HTML/CSS

    A programmer/developer can easily learn both systems. It's not hard and takes very little time. You learn as you build the apps/pages.

    I usually build my web apps in C#/ASP.NET first, mainly as a means to keep my hand in with that technology, but also because I can code in those languages very quickly. Then I translate it to PHP/HTML.

    I only went to PHP because one of my hosts cannot host ASP.NET apps, but love the system. Reminds me of my old C programming days

    I've programmed in all 3, ASP, PHP and ASP.NET (VB.NET & C#).
    Since WordPress is the hottest thing these days, PHP is good to know if you want to build your own plugins.
    ASP is severely outdated at this point. So between PHP and ASP, I choose PHP.
    PHP is finally supporting classes, and is becoming a real programming language.

    Personally, I don't like mixing my code with HTML - very sloppy. Which is why ASP.NET has code-behind. This way you organize your classes, methods, etc completely separate from your HTML.

    Also, if outsourcing, PHP takes longer development time than ASP.NET. (which means more $$$ expense)
    Let's say you wanted to grab data from a database and present it in a table that sorts, includes pagination, and is also able to drag columns around, edit cells, and just have lots of functionality. If developing this in PHP, lots of time would be spent writing pages of code in order to implement this. (Lots of painful debugging as well).
    However, in ASP.NET, with the right control (widget), it's as easy as dropping it on your WYSIWYG editor, adding about 3-5 lines of code, and making a couple of property changes to the grid control. (Telerik is awesome, but pricey.)

    ASP.NET is much more evolved than any of the other languages, and much more powerful.
    Restrictions in the past was host pricing. But these days you can get hosting for $6/mo with unlimited domains, unlimited SQL Server DBs, multiple IPs (A classes), and unlimited ASP.NET applications. (the host I use )
    So hosting price is not a consideration when choosing.

    You could download a free ASP.NET IDE at (ironically) Home: The Official Microsoft ASP.NET Site.

    All coding is fun, though. And in todays world, it's good to know a few languages.

    Good Luck!

    I dont know much about PHP but I am satisfied with the ASP.NET framework for my web development concerns. First of all it supports MVC and MVC2 right out of the box if you are using .NET framework 4.0 for development. It supports JQuery out of the box with intellisense support in Visual Studio 2008 SP 1 onwards. It also supports integration with silverlight content. It also has various templates available online where you can customize the site if you want according to your needs. The latest IDE i.e. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 is a great IDE to develop not only ASP.NET content but also various desktop applications. One more thing worth mentioning is that if you dont want to pay and want to develop ASP.NET websites, you can get a Express version of Visual Studio (Visual Web Developer Express edition).

    Both are very good, but ASP is not used very widely these days. Since it is an open source and MySQL being a free database and have numerous resources people are using PHP. And you will find so many applications that can be used for your personal or commercial use and most importantly they are free, so php is growing in a rocket speed.

        PHP and ASP are the two most popular means for building web applications. These two programming languages could be used interchangeably and while they are capable of building applications with the same functionality. Unlike ASP,PHP has a fairly large developer community that is active in reporting bugs and creating additional PHP libraries.

        PHP is actually nothing more than a collection of apparently random curly brackets, semi-colons, and dollar signs, thrown together by said geek in such a way that anybody with a grain of common sense cannot understand any of it.

        Classic ASP on the other hand is actually readable, and actually makes sense when you read it. It is without doubt, as programming language go,infinite superior to PHP. Classic ASP on the other hand is actually readable, and actually makes sense when you read it. It is without doubt, as programming languages go, infinitely superior to PHP.

        So the only reason PHP is more popular and more widespread than ASP is because Microsoft got it wrong, again, and put their profits before any sort of medium term view on how the web server market was going to pan out.

    I think the overwelming word here says PHP and I have to agree. IF you are strictly speaking about ASP and excluding ASP.NET then PHP is far ahead of the game. PHP like others have said is free so it is very widely used because its cheaper to get your hands on. I have worked with both languages(mostly php) and php just has more features. I won't go and say PHP is more stable/reliable because if you compare asp to php5 on a wamp setup php fails but asp trudges on just fine.

    I think that if you want to get a better answer the question needs to be more specific to a certain task. I think for most cases php would be the better choice though.

    Take objective factors to decide:

    -PHP is free for users and for servers.
    -ASP is not free. You need to pay for the IDE and the Server. You can user a custom IDE, but you still (or your sever) pay or the server app.
    -PHP has a larger community.
    -95% Open Source projects are done in PHP, so if you don't know the language, forget about custom work.
    -PHP runs on every unix based system, windows, Mac, <insert Operative system here>.

Best PHP Web Hosting MySQL database also free you from the fastest and creative ways to develop the site allows. So it has been found through open-sourced services at the same time can get the best possible facilities.

  • I am glad that the majority of respondants have gone with php.

    I am a convert from ASP (or classic ASP as its now called), and the reason (apart from I didn't like .net), is that for a small business, so many free resources are available for PHP based websites.

    If you get into blogging, then (arguably) Wordpress is the way to go and its written in PHP for example.

    Both are in demand, but in different areas. Where employers will go is hard to predict. .NET will lock you into Windows, while PHP can be used on any operating system. It can't hurt to look at .NET, but ditching PHP entirely would probably be a mistake. It's beneficial to be proficient at several technologies these days. HTH

    ASP is dead. I'm sure you meant ASP.NET.

PHP is #1, make no mistake about it. However, that's only my opinion. There are prefer who prefer ASP.NET to PHP, others prefer RoR, etc. so you have to find the one that you like.

    You have to put the question in context. Unless your appliction is running on Windows, ASP isn't an option.

    PHP wins in most categories, because it is ubiquitous, widely supported, and you can find cheap labor. With PHP5.3, it's also a credible language with a decent object model and namespaces. Adding on a "bytecode cache", and you can get good performance, too.

    ASP could be a good fit if you are working in a Microsoft shop that demands Microsoft technologies, or you need to access functionality only available on Windows.

    The server environment is a snap to install and configure and the development environment is easier to get going.

    I've been an ASP developer for over a decade, and because I know ASP inside and out, I will choose ASP in most situations because I can code much quicker in a language that I know. PHP has far larger support and community, and of course it's free.

    The bottom line is to go with what you know and most comfortable with. If I were to start over at this day and age, I would recommend you learn PHP because Microsoft is not supporting ASP much more (or even ASP.net).

It has come a long way and is very robust and powerful. Unless I need something really fast which I will do in C, I most always choose PHP followed by JAVA. Just my 2 cents!

    PHP is more secure. ASP.NET is faster than PHP4. PHP5 and ASP.NET perform about the same. ASP.NET is known for exploits when running on IIS. PHP is cross-platform. ASP.NET is windows only. PHP is free and less costly to use. ASP.NET web hosting is very expensive. It really depends on what you want to do. What will be the size of this eCommerce site?

    I have coded in ASP for many years (not by choice) and I am not a huge fan of it. The code is ugly and ASP.Net is soo far ahead of it. It's a legacy framework and should be avoided.

    I guess it really depends on what you are looking to do as far as using ASP.Net or PHP. I'm not very adverse in PHP, though I'm learning. I have used ASP.Net pretty extensively and it's a very nice framework to work with but I would use it more for web application development...though you can pretty much do whatever you want. As far as PHP goes, the community is massive and support can be found anywhere. The 3 major content management systems (CMS)...Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal are coded in PHP.

    You're decision for a language or a framework should primarily be decided by what you are trying to accomplish, what is already out there and what you currently know. I very rarely create anything from scratch just because reinventing the wheel is unnecessary...unless said wheel is broken.

    More information on what you're trying to accomplish would be extremely helpful to provide a better answer.

    I'm an asp.net developer. We work with windows servers, use SQL server, and I write code in C#. You're comparing sprite to sierra mist. Their personal choice things. You can use whatever you want, as long as you know how to write the code-behind.

    I prefer C# because I like the way it handles object-oriented programming. And I absolutely LOVE LINQ to SQL. It makes writing DB queries a breeze. If you don't know LINQ, check it out. It'll make you want to write in ASP.net

    One of the biggest complaints with ASP.net however is that you have to use tools you pay for. PHP on the other follows the LAMP open-source model. ASP.net is very much Microsoft - although there are some free tools Microsoft lets you use.

      Dave, I wouldn't go that far. ASP.net has a large community, open-source projects, and even offers a lot of support FROM Microsoft. PHP is preferred amongst alot of freelancers and smaller development houses because it's mostly free. Teams that have larger budgets are more easily capable of implementing an ASP.net solution.

      Part of the reason ASP.net is becoming so popular is because of the use of C# programming on the back-end couple with Microsoft's Express developer kits (all free development software - limited in some features, but not functionality).

      As far as community goes, you may be right in more volume, but I don't know if you're absolutely right about there being a better community for PHP - in a support, documentation, and instruction sense.

    In fact, the only reason to learn ASP is no longer if you need to work on legacy systems. You'd better learn VB.NET this thing, if you are interested in Microsoft's Web technologies.

    I prefer PHP, which is available free of charge. Furthermore, the characteristics are also reliable. It was easy to understand, learn and use. ASP is good.

    Both PHP and ASP have its own advantages and disadvantages. It basically depends on which part of developing a website you are most concerned with. Are you worried about the cost of creating your website? Do you want to use a programming language that you are more familiar with? Do you want a more stable and faster website? Choosing between ASP and PHP basically depends on your own personal preference. It doesn't hurt to confer with other programmers or webmasters and research more information on which programming would best fit the requirements of your website.

    PHP is more secure. ASP.NET is faster than PHP4. PHP5 and ASP.NET perform about the same. ASP.NET is known for the exploits when running on IIS. PHP is cross platform. ASP.NET is Windows only. PHP is free and less expensive to use. ASP.NET Web Hosting is very expensive. It really depends on what you do. What is the size of this e-commerce site? For larger sites, ASP and Microsoft SQL are the best option. MySQL is not suitable for large websites unless InnoDB tables or mixture is used, and design appropriate database.

    Both are good. PHP is a life of small business owners around the world due to low cost housing. Asp.net is a compiled application and with minor adjustments can be converted to a software application.

    Hmm.. thats interesting.
    ASP is better,
    ASP is more secure. Its easier and visually coded. I have not heard any asp site getting hacked unless the server itself ishacked.

    You can create encrypted files ,so your client will not see any code, so he cant modify it.

    PHP is good for local webdesign, but where security etc matters, go with asp.

    Welcome to the holy wars, crusader!

    Seriously, there is no "best" language for every purpose. Programming is a series of trade-offs and compromises, just like every other kind of engineering.

    I've used ASP.NET extensively. There's things about it that I like, and things about it that I dislike.

    I've used PHP also. There's things about it that I like, and things about it that I dislike.

    Ditto for Perl, 'classic' ASP, vbscript, javascript, java server pages, and ISAPI extensions in C++

    ASP MVC is interesting, but I haven't used it yet. Ditto for Ruby, Python, and node.js

    Whichever tool you choose, learn it well - but don't hold it as gospel. It's just a tool.

    I started using PHP around 12 years ago. Back then ASP was pretty new and I was already familiar with PHP so stuck with it. It's come a long way since then and these days I use CodeIgniter for most projects which just happens to be written in PHP... So I don't have an answer to the title of this thread but can say I've never felt limited in any way by what PHP can do. Having said that if I was starting out today, I would probably be spending a lot of time on this site...

    ASP is a Microsoft product and it was quite limited in sense of functionality
    Most of sites on the internet are written in PHP
    and most hostings support PHP

    PHP is the basic language but ASP is the big technology, learn PHP with in 2 months and then make a command on your ASP if you are interested in this field coz on ASP their are lots of forms with their functionality are designed with in a minutes. ASP got more weight at this stage.
