.NET is a software framework developed by Microsoft. It includes a large library and provides language interoperability (each language can use code written in other languages) across several programming languages.
.NET Framework's Base Class Library provides user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications.
Most applications created for Windows today are developed using .NET.
PHP is a server-side scripting language designed for web development but also used as a general-purpose programming language. PHP is now installed on more than 244 million websites and 2.1 million web servers.
PHP code is interpreted by a web server with a PHP processor module, which generates the resulting web page: PHP commands can be embedded directly into an HTML source document rather than calling an external file to process data. It has also evolved to include a command-line interface capability and can be used in standalone graphical applications.
Ace has developed several websites using PHP, and has also updated existing websites to make them compatible with mobile apps and interfaces.
ASP.NET is a server-side Web application framework developed by Microsoft for Web development to produce dynamic Web pages. It allows programmers to build dynamic web sites, web applications and web services. It is the successor to Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology.
SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. There are at least a dozen different editions of Microsoft SQL Server aimed at different audiences and for workloads ranging from small single-machine applications to large Internet-facing applications with many concurrent users.
MySQL is the world's second most popular open-source relational database management system. MySQL is a popular choice of database for use in web applications, and is a central component of the widely used LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP/Python). MySQL is also used in many high-profile, large-scale websites, including Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and YouTube.
The Oracle Database (commonly referred to as Oracle RDBMS or simply as Oracle) is an object-relational database management system produced and marketed by Oracle Corporation. Unlike MySQL, it is neither open-source, nor free, but does offer some advantages in specific situations and use-cases.
