ASP.NET is one of the most popular web development technologies on the planet. The first version was released in 2002, and since then, Microsoft has continued the tradition of releasing a powerful web development framework that allows web developers to do more with less. ASP.NET has experienced rapid growth among the established corporate world, as well as becoming the choice for many freelance developers.

ASP.NET has many advantages, including a well-established IDE (Integrated Development Environment) called Microsoft Visual Studio, and advanced security and performance frameworks that handle many of the mundane tasks automatically on the server side, freeing the developer to create more full-fledged web applications and websites.

What is ASP.NET?

ASP.NET is a server-side technology for developing web applications based on the Microsoft .NET Framework.

ASP.NET is a server-side technology. That is, it runs on the web server. Most web designers cut their teeth learning client-side technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). When a web browser requests a web page created
with only client-side technologies, the web server simply grabs the files that the browser (or client) requests and sends them down the line. The client is entirely responsible for reading the markup in those files and interpreting that markup to display the page on the screen.

Server-side technologies such as ASP.NET, however, are a different story. Instead of being interpreted by the client, server-side code (for example, the code in an ASP.NET page) is interpreted by the web server. In the case of ASP.NET, the code in the page is read by the server and used to generate the HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, which is then sent to the browser. Since the processing of the ASP.NET code occurs on the server, it’s called a server-side technology.



The transaction starts and ends with the user. The user operates the web client software and interprets the results.

Web client

This is the software program that the person uses to interact with the web application. The client is usually a web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Web server

This is the software program located on the server. It processes requests made by the web client.

Advantages of Asp. Net

  • ASP.NET lets you write the server-side code using your favorite programming language—or at least the one you prefer from the long list of supported languages. The .NET Framework currently supports over 40 languages, and many of these may be used to build ASP.NET websites.
  • ASP.NET pages are compiled, not interpreted. In ASP.NET’s predecessor, ASP (“classic ASP”), pages were interpreted: every time a user requested a page, the server would read the page’s code into memory, figure out how to execute the code, and execute it.
  • ASP.NET has full access to the functionality of the .NET Framework. Support for XML, web services, database interaction, email, regular expressions, and many other technologies are built right into .NET, which saves you from having to reinvent the wheel.
  • ASP.NET allows you to separate the server-side code in your pages from the HTML layout. When you’re working with a team composed of programmers and design specialists,
  • ASP.NET makes it easy to reuse common User Interface elements in many web forms, as it allows us to save those components as independent web user controls.
