Definition of Active Server Page (ASP)

A type of HTML page (denoted by an .asp file name) that includes scripts (small programs) that are processed on a web server before the web page is served to the user's web browser. ASP is a Microsoft technology that usually runs on a Microsoft Internet Information Server (usually on Windows IT). The main use of such programs is to process information supplied by the user in a online form. A query may then be run to provide specific information to the customer such as delivery status on an order, or a personalised web page.
