How much current you talking,
For large high voltage currents IGBT is the way to go. It is not just the low on resistance that matters, Switching losses are the problem. During switching, the power dissipated is the average.
IE: Average power during switching = A/2 * V/2.
So, no matter how low your R(on) is, how fast and how often you switch is the problem.
