Advantages of ASP.NET over PHP

This is sequel to the last post Advantages of PHP over ASP .NET DotNet has got its own merit over PHP. Both of them are appropriate for different types of websites, so use the right tool for the job.

  • Site structure controls and providers. Standard controls for menus, sitemaps, breadcrumbs which works with sitemaps. One built-in provider for a site structure in an xml file. Or implement your own (4 methods of an interface).
