I am just wondering would ASP.net webpages be good for a e-commerce or charity site? It uses SQL Server CE can you use SQL Sever with asp.net webpages? Is it still could for making big apps like an e-commerce site or charity site where people can donate?

YES - there are no limits what you can build and yes you can use full SQL if you want. You can even build app with sql ce (if you want) and then click migrate in webmatrix and it will migrate your db to full sql in one click.

Yes ASP.NET webpages is easy and fast to start your work with. You can select the SQL database from there too. If you use WebMatrix than its just as easy for you to select Database as to click a submit button.
And as far as your question about e-commerce is concerned. it can create almost every type of website. You just need to provide the relative code and it will work fine with you.
For example : I used to get values from two databases but then I got to learn about SQL JOIN from GmGrgori. He taught me about it. And now I can use that to do all my job. You see all you need is to give the perfect code for the job.

Since ASP.Net Web Pages have the .NET foundation, it is very robust. It will easily handle an e-commerce or charity site. And Web Pages using Razor syntax and WebMatrix is about as easy as you can ever get to have a web site up and going. Of course there
will be a learning curve, but I found it easier to learn than using .Net Web Forms or MVC.
