Server-Side Technologies: Which to Choose?

Q1:CGI, ASP—Server technologies are taking the Web world by storm, particularly in commerce and security situations. How does a developer know how to make the best choice?
A1: Much of that depends on what you have now. If you're starting from scratch, a survey of your current and future needs will help you match the best server type and associated technologies. For example, if you want aggressive support for Microsoft technologies, using Microsoft servers and server-side applications such as ASP will be the best choice. However, if you want more flexibility and greater freedom outside of proprietary server technologies, taking a look at UNIX and Linux servers may well be your best bet.

Of course, if you already have a specific server type at hand, you'll want to consider which technologies are most effective in that server environment.
