ASP vs. ASP.NET
ASP stands for Active Server Page which is a server-side environment created by Microsoft. An ASP is a Web page that contains HTML and embedded programming code written in VBScript or Jscript. ASPs are similar to CGI scripts and JavaServer Pages (JSPs), which allow Web pages to interact with databases and other programs. In 2002, ASP.NET was introduced. ASP.NET differs from classic ASP in two major ways: it supports code written in compiled languages such as Visual Basic, C++, C#, and Perl, and it features server controls that can separate the code from the content, allowing WYSIWYG editing of pages. Although ASP.NET is not backwards compatible with ASP, it can run side by side with ASP applications. Since the scripts in ASP pages (suffix .asp) are processed by the server, any browser can work with ASP pages regardless of its support for the scripting language used therein. You should carefully read each hosting company's information to be assured that it supports whichever version of ASP you need.
