The language doesn't really matter, it depends on which one is most comfortable for you. I use PHP. There's also ASP, CGI and other languages.

Well, first it depends on what the server lets you useCan you use PHP, ASP, .NET, CGI, or what?If you can use several languages, which do you like to do best? :)

E.g. do you have more of a BASIC or C background?

If you're going with something like creating a CMS (Content Management System). You'll need a admin page(s) for them to log into to make changes. To store the data you could either use file access and store content in txt files and insert via includes. Or you could create a database to store the data. It all depends on what type of data you're trying to store. If you need something complex (multi-field like a database) but portable (like a txt file) you could also use xml.For languages to create the back-end you could use server-side scripting like PHP or ASP. Client-side scripting like JavaScript could also be used, but I usually reserve this for special effects that won't break the site if they are disabled.
