What is the difference between PHP and ASP.NET hosting?

ASP.NET Hosting

Microsoft ASP.NET is a free technology that allows programmers to create dynamic web applications. ASP.NET can be used to create anything from small, personal websites through to large, enterprise-class web applications.

An ASP.NET hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to provide their own ASP.NET website accessible via the World Wide Web. The latest .NET Framework version is 4.5, so the latest .NET hosting is ASP.NET 4.5 hosting.

PHP Hosting

PHP is a general-purpose scripting language originally designed for web development to produce dynamic web pages. For this purpose, PHP code is embedded into the HTML source document and interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module, which generates the web page document. It also has evolved to include a command-line interface capability and can be used in standalone graphical applications.

A PHP hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to provide their own PHP website accessible via the World Wide Web.

ASP.NET Hosting VS PHP Hosting

Usually ASP.NET hosting is hosted on Windows servers and PHP hosting is hosted on Linux servers.

Windows is the most prominent operating system released under a proprietary software license, whereas Linux is the most prominent operating system released under a free software license. However, most Linux distribution sites also have proprietary components for their distribution available.

Both technologies are suitable for beginners, professional web developers, and everyone in between, but it is essential to choose the technology that is more suited to your style of web building. Each technology has its own distinct advantages for users.
