ASP stands for Active Server Pages

ASP is a development framework for building web pages.

ASP and ASP.NET are server side technologies.

ASP (aka Classic ASP) was introduced in 1998 as Microsoft's first server side scripting language.

Classic ASP pages have the file extension .asp and are normally written in VBScript.

Both technologies enable computer code to be executed by an Internet server.

When a browser requests an ASP or ASP.NET file, the ASP engine reads the file, executes any code in the file, and returns the result to the browser.
