What is ASP/ASP.NET?

ASP stands for Active Server Pages. ASP and ASP.NET are programs that run on Windows. ASP files have the file extension ".asp" and ASP.NET files have the file extension ".aspx." ASP and ASP.NET allow you to:

  • Dynamically edit, change, or add content on your Web page.
  • Respond to user queries or data submitted from HTML forms.
  • Access any data or databases and return the results to a browser.
  • Customize a Web page to make it more useful for individual users.
