    It's more to your preference actually.
    But probably most of the sites out there are using php.

    IMO, python.

    Question

    I think javascript is better than php because in with javascript we can have flash like features and animation like prompt, alert, wipe, and other animation effects which makes a website quick and fast. But on the other hand, as i think, with php we will be unable to get such features.
    Am i right?

    Site functionality should NEVER be left up to javascript. JS should only be used to enhance the user experience after the designer/developer knows the site fully works without it. Remember, javascript is a CLIENT side langauge. Sure you can do some "neat" tricks with it, but its also susceptible to users "turning it off", you cant fully protect sensitive information such as login or email with js, and forget about FULLY validating forms.

    But to the OP, I would agree with the other post that php is probably the most common, and since its free to use and develop in, it makes sense.

    Personally I prefer and will ALWAYS prefer to code in Coldfusion as my server side.

    Below is a list of the programming languages I can think of right now.

    Ajax

    ASP

    ASP.NET

    C

    C++

    C#

    ColdFusion

    CSS

    Flash

    HTML

    Java

    Javascript

    MySQL

    Perl

    PHP

    Python

    Ruby

    Visual Basic

    XHTML

    XML
    Some languages are correlated so you would have to use some together depending on your required site's functionality.
    Example : php mysql

    From your questions I'm assuming that you're new to web stuff, you should read some online tutorials or get some ebooks to read. That's how you're gonna learn efficiently (assuming that you want to code a website yourself)

    To be frank, no you aren't. You are comparing apples and oranges there. PHP and JavaScript have two entirely different purposes. PHP works only on the server side and JavaScript works only on the client side.

    As for the original poster's question. Are you asking in terms of server side programming or client side? On the client side you have very few options so there isn't much of a debate there. As for the server side, there is no "best" language. In fact in computer programming in general there is no "best" language. There is only the best tool for the job. Different languages can allow you to have different approaches to solving certain problems. There are other factors that can influence your language choice as well.

    Php is main language which you require in order to code your website. And For Design you can use HTML,DHTML/CSS.

    its depand on need of website subject. means if you want to make simple informative website then HTML is the best language forever. and if you want to make e-com base website then dot.net is more better then other languag. so, make clear that which type of structure you want to create.

    AJAX is not a programming language, it’s a buzzword for a JavaScript function. Flash is also not a programming language, it’s a software platform for designing interactive media. At most, ActionScript (which is used in Flash and a close relative to JavaScript) can be considered a programming language.

    CSS is technically also not a programming language but it’s more of a “language” than the previous two so I give you that.

    Sometimes I wonder how people come up with things like that. “SAAS” is not a programming language, it’s a business model. And jQuery is just a JavaScript framework, not a programming language either (as isn’t MVC).

    How do people get through life throwing random buzzwords around?

    Php is better, because it's dynamic, has support for html/css as well, and can be used for various things that would be difficult or impossible in html.
