ASP (Active Server Pages) is a scripting language created by Microsoft. ASP is a powerful tool used by web programmers, web designers and database engineers to create more effective web sites. It is faster and easier to use than CGI. ASP can be used in conjunction with HTML to create dynamic web pages. It is free to download from Microsoft and there are tools available to help make scripting easier. If you use ASP you must have a Windows-based server so make sure the web hosting provider you choose offers that option. ASP scripts can be directly embedded within your HTML pages, so it is easy to learn and flexible. If you already know another scripting language such as VBScript you basically already know how to use ASP.
