    I develop the back end systems and renderers with programming languages. My choice is first c# but that's just because of my history. There are many. Now when you say web development it's like java script and browser programming. Right now your choices are java script, some java script pre-compilers like TypeScript and this Blazor that Microsoft wants to try to replace java script. 

    You can do everything in java script and its derivitives though. Front and back end.

    There's no "best" language for web dev, it depends on the webhost you're going to use, among other things.

    A common beginner's choice, and well supported by most webhosts, is PHP.

    Alternatives are Python, Ruby, Node (JavaScript), C# and Java, popular web frameworks

    respectively are Django, Ruby on Rails, express, asp.NET and JSP.

    Since JavaScript is also used in the browser I'll recommend trying node/express first, provided you have basic JS knowledge already.

    The pages themselves are HTML with CSS; that is all a web browser can understand so you have no other options.

    If you are making a database-driven site, the "back end" is generally best using PHP and Mysql. 

    There are other possible languages for that part, but those are the most versatile and best supported on all web servers.

    Web Pages are written in a Mark Up Language called HTML & CSS.   Java Script is also used for special features.
