Running PHP on Windows is not a problem, PHP is cross-platform, as are other common free-software programs such as MySQL or Apache. Most hosting companies offering Windows servers have PHP installed by default.
For .NET on Linux, you should check out the Mono Project [mono-project.com] - however, .NET is designed to function primarily on Windows servers only and Mono is unlikely to be installed by default by hosting companies. You would have to install it yourself, or use a dedicated server - it is usually much easier to stick to a Windows server environment in this case.
