ASP.NET is the next generation scripting language to ASP (Active Server Pages). It was developed by Microsoft and allows web developers to create dynamic web pages using databases. ASP.NET adds the ability to support code from Visual Basic, C++ and Perl , and you gain server controls for easier editing. Microsoft has also created more tools for ASP.NET which support easier development. You can distinguish ASP.NET pages from ASP pages by their extensions -- .asp or .aspx (for ASP.NET). ASP.Net also supports XML. It does take more memory which can become a problem for web-based applications. ASP Web Hosting is usually based on a Windows server and you need to make sure your web host offers ASP support.
