What are Active Server Pages (ASP)?


Active Server Pages is a fairly new programming language designed to run active content on the server and then display the result on the viewer's browser. It is used extensively for such tasks as managing and querying on-line databases and building intuitive forms. Unlike JavaScript, which downloads the actual code into your browser and then activates, ASP pages run strictly on the server. The user triggers a request from the web page, the ASP processes it, and then sends back the requested info in purely HTML format- i.e. no actual ASP coding leaves the server and it is protected from being plagiarized. check out http://www.aspin.comfor great ASP resources.

Where can I place my ASP files?
Your ASP files can be placed anywhere in your web. The root directory is a good location. If there is a global.asa file it must be in the root directory.
If you will be using multiple "applications" in different subwebs then you can use multiple global.asa files but you must contact and have your subwebs set up this way or set these up in your control panel for Windows plans.
