Both ASP and PHP are both software script languages that can be used to generate dynamic web pages. ASP can be used on a Windows-based server whereas PHP is supported through Unix or Linux servers. They are both free and have tutorials available online, however PHP seems to have more extensive tutorials and free tools. Most web hosting comes with free PHP support, but you need to make sure if you are using ASP that ASP scripts will work with your hosting server. ASP does take more memory so it is slower in loading and is less efficient than PHP. Although PHP can do everything that ASP can do, many programmers choose to use ASP because they like the functionality and choose to stick with what they know and like.
