I want to make my own website and buy hosting.

I want to decide on which platform should I make my website. JAVA(EJB/Advanced Java) or .Net(C#) being the Front End and MS SQL Server or MySQL Back End.

I want help regarding whether I need to purchase licensed Visual Studio .Net for .Net based website and JAVA based will be free.

Back End will be of the host so if I use MS SQL Server will I need to get license? If yes, should I use MySQL database(is MySQL free)?

Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Need to purchase VS .NET: no. there is an Express edition:[^]

MsSQL server license: no. You may have to if you upscale it later, but I've never been charged for MsSql use on my website: the hosting company is.

If you can use MsSql rather than MySql, I would go for it: I like MySql and it works well, but support is better for MsSql and (in the early stages) I have had less problems. The free management tools are better as well.

Go with whichever language you are happier with. If you know C# better than Java, I would go with it.
