What is ASP? ASP is a short name for Active Server Pages. JSP was introduced in 1996 by Microsoft as part of IIS (Internet Information Server) 3.0.

ASP is a technology, not a language. It allows Web page authors to put dynamic data into a Web document with scripting statements embedded in special HTML tags. You can write the scripting statements in any language as long as the Web server can recognize them and execute them. The Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0 supports two scripting languages: Visual Basic Script (VBScript) and Java Script (JScript).

ASP is the file extension for Active Server Pages files, which are HTML documents with embedded scripting statements.

Here is a sample ASP file:

<%@ language="vbscript"%>
<html><body>
Welcome to <% response.write("FYIcenter.com") %>!
</body></html>
