I'm getting a new site designed and have narrowed it down to 2 designers. the initial brief was for php. I'm an old school designer and can only really work in HTML, but have a little knowledge of PHP. the designer we like the most only works with .asp of which I know not much. Some quick googling tells me there may be some speed issues with asp compared to php, can anyone back this up? Also does anyone with knowledge of the 2 languages have any opinions relating to SEO, my current html site ranks really well and I don't want to lose that. Another point is that my current host, which I have just paid another year of hosting and security cert, does not support asp, so I would also need to migrate the site to another host. i can use that hosting for another site so the money spent is not really an issue, but how would changing hosts affect my rankings at the same time as the site being changed. Any well informed help would be appreciated.
