Active Server Pages (ASP)

ASP is a web page scripting to create and display dynamic and interactive web pages. Generally ASP is created using VBScript which is a Microsoft programming language. In order to make ASP pages work, the pages need to be on a web server, as most web pages are.

The standard for web pages is .html but with Active Server Pages, the extension is .asp. But just like html, asp can be viewed on any web browser as it is not web brower dependent but rather web server dependent.

What this means is that visitors to websites using ASP will have no problem viewing the site no matter what web browser they use or what operating system they have on their home computer. But the web pages themselves need to be on servers that use the Windows hosting environment.
