ASP Web hosting
ASP web hosting refers to web hosting companies who
provide support for ASP (Active Server Page). If you
want a dynamic data-driven web site you may wish to
embed ASP code into your web site’s HTML Pages.
When a user is viewing a web site that is developed
using ASP, the pages can change depending on the actions
of the user. ASP code allows you to link your web pages
to a database, where users can interact with the web
page by logging in and using their own personal settings
or they can interactively place orders on your web site.
What is ASP?
ASP stands for Active Server Pages. Active Server Pages
are HTML pages with embedded ASP scripts that are processed
on the server before the page is sent to the user. ASP
allows you to create dynamic database driven pages,
a user can access data in a database, and interact with
page objects such as Active X or Java components.
How does ASP work?
When you type a URL in the Address Box or click on
a web page you are asking the web server to send a file
to your computer; if the file is standard HTML, then,
when your web browser receives the web page it will
look exactly the same as it did on the web server. However
if an ASP file is sent to your computer from the web
server, firstly, the server will run the HTML code;
and then, run the ASP code. For example: the ASP code
could be the current date, or time; and other such information.
How to find an ASP web host
You will need to find a web host who will host your
website on a Windows 2000 or 2003 server. It is safer
to host your ASP pages on a Windows server as they are
more stable and most ASP components work with IIS (Internet
Information Services), specific to Windows. You also
need to consider if your web site uses a database (e.g.
SQL, Access) and then make sure your web host provides
support for the type of database your web site uses.
