ASP Software

By bldsm ·
I am currently using a mixture of Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash on my business web site but am interested in saving myself time (longterm) by moving into ASP. What software would I need to program in ASP (as I know nothing of it), who makes it, do I need an ASP cabable server or will my ISP supply it and what else is involved?

Is ASP worthwhile or for a medium size business site of 250+ pages what would people suggest.

Active Server Pages (ASP) is a Microsoft technology that runs on IIS systems. I believe there are extensions available that allow ASP sites to run on Apache servers, but I can't confirm that as I've never used them. Most ISPs support ASP, and a few support ASP.Net at extra charge.

Developing websites in ASP doesn't require any special tools - Notepad is quite sufficient. I use Visual InterDev only because I happen to have it. It's utterly useless for ASP development, other than the fairly good text editor it provides.

A very good reference for learning how to code ASP pages can be found at http://www.w3schools.com. I strongly recommend that you visit the site and spend some time doing the tutorials. For the size of site you're considering ASP is a very good solution.
