    It looks like you are confused between server side and client side coding... For example HTML, Javascript is client side and PHP is server side which normally gets rendered as HTML output. Also you are mixing up windows applications development with web based applications i.e. Visual Basic which is outdated... Although VB.NET is applicable wrt server based.. It also looks like you don't know which Operating system to go for e.g. Windows, Linux etc...

    It seems to me you need to figure out a lot of other stuff before you even begin...

    Yes you are right I need to figure out a lot of stuff before starting my journey in this field. Could you tell me which language should I start with, also tell em which operating system should I choose in order to built web based server side applications?

    For web based, server side applications, you have to first decide which OS you will use.

    Windows or a Linux distribution.

    On Windows, you will want to learn the asp.net framework with C# or Visual Basic.net

    On Linux, you will want to learn php.

    I've programmed in many different languages against various O.S... Personally I would go for Linux/Unix environment using MySQL (or MariaDB) database built on top of PHP for server side programming blended with HTML/Javascript/AJAX/JQuery and AngularJS for client end...Everything I mentioned is open source and does not require any licensing etc... Out of the list pay particular attention to AngularJS as this is new kid on the block and has some awesome cutting edge means of creating web apps...

    I would prefer using PHP coding as they provide more customized and lots of options to build your webpage. PHP can be the best coding that can build a good looking website. WordPress also uses PHP for designing webpages.

    All the web languages need to use HTML to show pages on the browser, so it is necessary to be learnt to develop a web app.
    I think the most easy and extended language on the web is PHP. Using a framework like Codeigniter lets you create a great and secure web app in a little time. I recommend to read any basic PHP book from a public library, for example, try to make a few examples from that book and after that learn Codeigniter following its tutorial.

    Laravel as backend and AngularJS in the front communicating via Rest API with Laravel hands down.

    You could get there with PHP and HTML but I highly suggest looking into Laravel to create the backend. Laravel is an enormous powerful PHP framework that can be used to create API's or you can use its own templating engine that is incredibly easy and powerfull.
    If you go the API route you can use Laravel for almost everything. Web apps, mobile apss, web shops,...
