    Is it better to just do an html website or a php website with includes for all the major dives?
    This is for a page for no more then 10 pages.

    Will anyone be wanting to change content without upload files changes?
    Content editing would be the decision maker.

    So if its a personal website then I should go with .html?

    If you want to manually make changes using your text editor, and upload your changes,
    then plain-static HTML pages would be just fine to use in your case.

    If they want to upload photos, change any content, add pages, then they need to have the
    PHP scripts to do that. There is no issue if you change your .html extensions to .php ...
    in fact, you can leave your extensions .html and STILL use PHP scripting. You just need to
    tell the server to process .html files as .php (using the .htaccess file - Google that).

    I think if you gave a few more details about what the site will be used for, you'd get better responses. As others have said, if it's a static site that won't be changed or updated much, html is fine. However, if you want to easily make regular updates without messing with a text editor or ftp, a cms is a better solution.

    PHP, regardless of the circumstances. You never know what you'll want to do with the site later, so you might as well structure it to allow for growth. i would have said ASP.net if you'd have given me that option, though.

    You also won't need to deal with HTML-to-PHP 301s if/when you redesign. That's a standalone reason right there.
