ASP.NET stands for Active Server Pages .NET and is developed by Microsoft. ASP.NET is used to create web pages and web technologies and is an integral part of Microsoft’s .NET framework vision. As a member of the .NET framework, ASP.NET is a very valuable tool for programmers and developers as it allows them to build dynamic, rich web sites and web applications using compiled languages like VB and C#.
ASP.NET is not limited to script languages, it allows you to make use of .NET languages like C#, J#, VB, etc. It allows developers to build very compelling applications by making use of Visual Studio, the development tool provided by Microsoft. ASP.NET is purely server-side technology. It is built on a common language runtime that can be used on any Windows server to host powerful ASP.NET web sites and technologies.
ASP.NET provides services to allow the creation, deployment, and execution of Web Applications and Web Services. The .NET Framework provides class libraries that can be used by your application. Some of the key classes help you with input/output, access to operating system services, data access, or even debugging. We will go into more detail on some of them in this module.
ASP.NET is the platform which makes certain that the website designing and development is very reliable to be considered. ASP.NET turns out to be the best option for the purpose of developing the rich quality strategic applications which you desire to design. Yet another enthralling feature of ASP.NET is that, the codes in ASP.NET can be reused. Due to this reason, the overall development cost can also be decreased. The developers can reuse the codes and so the development time is also reduced. The perfect blend of this feature and the expertise of .NET developers results in doing much of the work in very less time.
