A Guide to Several Programming Languages Available for Web Development
The world of the internet is filled
with a clutter of websites that are developed with the help of
different programming languages, offering different benefits and
drawbacks. With the availability of a plethora of programming
languages for the purpose of development of a website, you must
choose the one that suits the best to your needs of a website. Before
making a choice of the best language, you need to have a basic
understanding of all the available web development programming
languages used to develop different websites available on the web.

PHP: This language can be
referred to as the king of the web development world in the category
of server side languages. Websites developed with PHP
Development India have covered around 75% of all the servers
hosting different websites. Many well-known websites are known to
have been programmed with this language, like the Wikipedia,
WordPress and a part of the Facebook that users are able to see.
Being a server-side language, the code written is processed before
the display of the final page to the user, where this language is
combined with MySQL for database related functions.

MySQL: This is not a
programming language, rather an open source and free database
server, but it offers a new language that users need to learn, in
order to deal with databases. MySQL is a command-line language with
some common GUI tools like PHPMyAdmin available for an easy database
management.

Javascript: This language
is mostly confused with the object-oriented programming language,
Java, while this one is the best option for creating interactive
pages. Javascript, a scripting language, executes locally on the
browser of the user, which allows web pages to respond easily to
different elements of the page and timing events. However, JQuery is
the framework for this language, which offers a better compatibility
with the browser with the need of a lesser code and is gaining
standard for modern websites.

Perl: This language has
been known to be the best web-programming language in the past,
which can process text very fast. With being a common target of
hackers, this language isn’t of much use while programming web
pages nowadays.

Python: This is a
strong-typed full object-oriented language, which is easy and fun to
work with, but attracts a few real-world applications only. Python
is used mostly by programmers, working for the development of
community-driven, open source and Linux projects.


Ruby: Ruby is another
web-programming language that is used along with its framework
Roby-on-Rails in many websites like Shopify, Groupon and Twitter’s
front-end. This language works similar to PHP with some advantages
like less repetition of code, speed and rapid development, but is
not supported by most web-servers.

ASP.net: Contributed by
Microsoft, this language is used in corporate environments only due
to its high security, which requires a particular Windows hosting
for execution.
If you are looking to create a modern
website with an interactive interface, the use of PHP supported by
MySQL database is preferred along with the use of jQuery and
Javascript for interactivity. However, other languages are also worth
investing in some other specific situations.
