ASP stands for "Active Server Pages".

ASP is an environment of dynamic scripts installed on the hosting server. The ASP codes are integrated into HTML.

The server translates live the instructions in the ASP codes. Actually, the server replaces the user browser in its task to decode and display the content and instructions of a page.

The content of an ASP page changes according to the instructions asked by the user.

ASP is used for:

  • Membership site
  • E-commerce
  • Site that users can customize
  • Large content (more than 10 000 pages)

ASP is quite a difficult language to work with. It is restricted to important web sites that have enough resources to manage many different options.

For your information, ASP does not work properly with Apache, the most popular server software.

Web languages:
HTML - PHP - XML - ASP - dHTML - CSS - Javascript - CGI bin - Perl - Java - Flash
