During some discussions about web design and content management, I learned the difference between php and asp.net. While forging ahead with a concept to build a site on wordpress, I discovered that the company server was a Microsoft asp.net server and would not be able to host the open source structure. Pity, but not surprising since it’s Microsoft.
Nonetheless, it is so affordable to buy hosting that I will continue with the plan to build the sites in wordpress and bypass the corporate server.
In short, php is open source, easy to use code and asp.net is more enterprise based, Microsoft specific. I found many good conversations when googling “php vs asp.net” including this one.
