What is ASP?

Definition of ASP

ASP stands for Active Server Pages. ASP is a scripting language developed by Microsoft, and is free for downloading from Microsoft. It is an open language and can be used with any HTML document to build dynamic web sites and does not have to have a specific editor to create ASP scripts but can be edited with any text editor. There are some tools which make it easier to create ASP scripts and are available from Microsoft. The only limitation with ASP is that you need to have hosting which can provide the ASP functionality on the server (a Windows-based server). ASP hosting is generally a bit more expensive and not as widely available as other hosting, but is a very popular scripting language with web developers.
