Company Press Release

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (June, 2002) – Webserver.com.my is pleased to announce the addition of ASP.net to its Active Server Pages supported features.
Active Server Pages, commonly referred to as ASP, is Microsoft’s solution to server-side scripting. With simple HTML pages, the client (a web surfer) requests a web page from a server (some www.domain.com). The server just sends the file to the client, and the page is shown on the client’s browser. With Active Server Pages, the server gets a chance to alter the file before sending it to the user. So, for every request for a file with a .ASP extension, the server runs the file through a DLL called ASP.DLL, which parses the ASP commands.
ASP.NET is the next generation of Active Server Pages. It’s Microsoft’s flagship technology for building dynamic, database-driven Web sites. ASP.NET is a dramatic improvement over earlier versions of Active Server Pages. Unlike ASP Classic, ASP.NET uses full compiled programming languages such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, and C#.
ASP.NET is more than the next version of Active Server Pages (ASP); it is a unified Web development platform that provides the services necessary for developers to build enterprise-class Web applications. While ASP.NET is largely syntax compatible with ASP, it also provides a new programming model and infrastructure for more secure, scalable, and stable applications. You can feel free to augment your existing ASP applications by incrementally adding ASP.NET functionality to them.
ASP.NET is a compiled, .NET-based environment; you can author applications in any .NET compatible language, including Visual Basic .NET, C#, and JScript .NET. Additionally, the entire .NET Framework is available to any ASP.NET application. Developers can easily access the benefits of these technologies, which include the managed common language runtime environment, type safety, inheritance, and so on.
ASP.NET has been designed to work seamlessly with WYSIWYG HTML editors and other programming tools, including Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. Not only does this make Web development easier, but it also provides all the benefits that these tools have to offer, including a GUI that developers can use to drop server controls onto a Web page and fully integrated debugging support.
Developers can choose from the following two features when creating an ASP.NET application, Web Forms and Web services, or combine these in any way they see fit.
Each of these models can take full advantage of all ASP.NET features, as well as the power of the .NET Framework and .NET Framework common language runtime. These features and how you can use them are outlined as follows:
You can have your ASP code connect to a database (SQL, Access, Oracle, Informix, or any ODBC-compliant database) and dynamically insert the data into your HTML pages. This leads to some very powerful possibilities including E-Commerce, customizable sites, data entering / retrieving systems run over the Internet, and some of the other above mentioned possibilities.
Hosting your ASP.net (.aspX) pages is now available at WebServer for only RM99 monthly. This Premium Hosting Plan will allow you to have unlimited pop3 email accounts up to 150MB of combined space.
