    ASP stands for Active Server Pages where ASP.NET represents the newer implementation of the language. Essentially ASP allows for you to create dynamic websites that can interact with the users to create a more robust web browsing experience. This is accomplished by the user making a request and then based upon that request the server then builds a page and sends the results to the user. There are many examples of usage from the very basic (Hello World) to the more diverse and dynamic (i.e. - AMAZON.COM).

    A decent resource for those wanting to get to know ASP is http://www.asp101.com/
