An ASP page is a server-generated Web page that contains Web scripts. The scripts are processed on the Web server and the resulting HTML is sent to the user's Web browser.

ASP pages are typically run from Microsoft IIS-based Web servers. They can be used for creating ASP.NET applications or for basic dynamically generated Web pages.
