    I'm going to do some programming course but in oscillation to select which is the best one for web development in future.

    I hope some great people here to give the perfect solution.

    What language is best for web development? PHP or .Net?

    Waiting for your suggestion, thank you.

    There is few things to take in consideration , one of them is the hosting .
    PHP and NodeJS (JavaScript for client side which is growing a lot now) while PHP is getting less used ... they have cheap hosting because they run both on Linux and since Linux is free and open source the hosting isn't much while ASP.NET run on Windows which require a licence .
    Beside that , If you want good performance then go with ASP.NET however If you are looking for speed then you might want to go with NodeJS or PHP . (NodeJS is highly recommended)

    People specializing in some odd languages can get paid a lot more in their work. But that's not the spirit of here to get a dayjob ;).

    I think it depends on what kind of web development you want to do. If it's just simple websites then, in my opinion, PHP is better. The hosting for PHP will be cheaper, or you can even get a free one. Also, there are a lot of popular CMS written in PHP (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.). There are tons of resources for learning PHP and helping you build websites with it.

    On the other hand, if you need to build something more serious, then .Net with C# will be a better choise and performance wise it will be faster than PHP. Knowing c# you will also have the possibility to write desktop apps, windows phone apps. You can even build android apps with c#.

    If you need to start fast and cheep then PHP is your choice. If you want to go slower but with more perspectives in the future go with .Net and c#.

    I'd guess that JavaScript is going to be even bigger than it's today, and other scripting languages will be about the same.

    There is no best one for web development in future, programming language is changing and different language has different usage while you are working on different projects.

    You can start from php first because it's easy to learn. You will find the pros and cons of php while you are coding. Then when you find php is not good for some kind of project, you will try other languages. Finally you will have the ability to code in several languages.
    Oh and you should learn the basis of database, MySQL is a good choice.

    I was a programmer before fulltime IM, and I'm still coding now for my IM projects with delphi/power builder/php/python/javascript. Delphi for desktop, php for web, python+javascript for single thread tests of web automation sometimes. I guess most of you don't even know what power builder is but it's really good for heavy database tasks.

    So finally you will know what languages you need. Now you just need to learn some basis.
