|Well, if you already know VB.NET
Then you can use it for your web development.
Of course, this implies that you have access to Windows Server that is able to run IIS.
Using VB.NET + ASP.NET to create a website, is I think the shortest way for you to have a working website
Otherwise, as you said that you are learning PHP...maybe you could use this language to build your website. The interest, is that finding inexpensive hosting opportunities running PHP is easier than for IIS/.NET.
