Nowadays web-site developers have a great amount of language technologies to create web-sites. According to statistic the PHP and the ASP.NET are the most popular, but which one is better and easier? If you'd worked in developing web applications which platfform would you have chose? Share your experience and opinions!

PHP is using by many open source projects while ASP.NET has limited :(
I prefer PHP for any website, project and application :)

I agree with Hostname but ASP.NET has limited, I have not ever heard about that, I'd like to know what limitations you are saying to?

PHP can do everything that ASP.NET can, and it can do it for free.

Not only can PHP do everything that ASP.NET can, but it can do so much more. I am proud to say that when it was popular and still being worked on, I utilized PHP-GTK. So many possibilities.

ASP is so 1990's! Stay with the LAMP stack and avoid Microsoft if you can. It's just less of an overall a headache in the long run.

Indeed PHP gets my vote!!! For newbies it may be a little harder to get used to as MS provides some really great IDE's such as visual studio which makes coding that much easier... I personally use notepad++ when coding PHP and it does the job- albeit a pain when attempting to solve runtime problems... That aside PHP is easy to learn and best of all is the sheer number of open source stuff that you can leverage as well as use of MySQL which is an awesome database platform and in my opinion far superior to SQL Server....

On one side PHP is a free open source stage while ASP.Net is a paid Microsoft stage. PHP is a blend between a programming dialect and a web system though ASP.NET is a straight application structure.

PHP is open source that is why most sites are built by PHP, ASP isn't but personally I prefer it.

This is a bad question. Most people (even so-called experts) don't understand that comparing PHP to ASP.NET is not apples to apples. PHP is a programming language. ASP.NET is NOT a programming language. The language used for ASP.NET is generally C# (VB.NET can also be used, but rarely ever is). Please make sure you understand that! If you read any articles comparing PHP to ASP.NET it is probably written by someone who doesn't understand both technologies. PHP is a programming language, ASP.NET is a web framework. Now read the answers above and see who you should cross off your list as experts!

So let's compare an apple to an apple, PHP vs C#. Here is what Google gives as a definition to each:

C# - An object-oriented programming language in development from Microsoft, which is intended to combine the computing power of C++ with the programming ease of Visual Basic.

PHP - PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language.

Google is skewing reality. C# is more widely used in NON-web applications than PHP is used as a general purpose programming language. How many people can say they've used PHP for a non-web application? C# is used for Windows phone apps, tools, and even cross platform mobile frameworks

To compare the ASP.NET apple with other apples you must compare it to PHP Frameworks such as, for example, Laraval. See http://vschart.com/compare/laravel/vs/asp-net-mvc-framework

The point is PHP is a programming language, whereas ASP.NET does not belong to the category of programming languages. C# or VB.Net are the languages usually used with ASP.Net. ... You cannot strike a comparison between PHP and ASP.NET as the latter is a web framework while the former is a programming language.

I've been using PHP for a year just doing simple projects, what I like about it is its free and open source and also a lot of people use it making more forums to ask for advice for coding problems.

I haven't really tried asp.net but is I often see in online job search that they're in need of asp.net devs I'm not sure why maybe since is it limited the developers has also become limited granting more demand.
