ASP - Active Server Pages

It is a server-side language just like PHP. ASP has better session/application abilities because it has events for Session_Begin and Session_End (i don't think those are the exact names tho)

ASP can be written in Visual Basic Script (VBS) or Javascript (JS). VB is the default and most common but it can be written in Java if you felt like it. You can even mix VB ASP and JS ASP on the same page.

If you have experience with PHP then the JS version of ASP will have more familiar syntax.

See, www.w3schools.com/asp/ for more details along with a tutorial.
