Why a web site, and why web hosting?Written by M6.net
Imagine having a filing system that could withstand a nuclear war. Hmm, I wouldn’t like to prove it, but in theory that is what Internet could resist with its virtual existence. If you transfer files of information around Internet, operating in virtual space, it would be difficult to lose that information if you had a mind not to. Possessing a website has advantages for many varieties of users; serving a range of different purposes. For example, Net presence is of enormous benefit to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Conventional filing systems, where everything is stored as a hard copy, are cumbersome, and space consuming. With a website, all existing documents can be transferred one way or another, to Internet and neatly organized using 'hyperlinks' (virtual pathways) for quick, easy reference. You no longer need to waste your time digging through a mile high pile of paper to find what your looking for, with your own website all it takes is click of a 'mouse'. A website wouldn’t only save you space and time, but cost too. The Internet is worldwide and a website can be used as a powerful promotional and marketing tool, viewed by prospective clients around world. One can see what you offer in Hong Kong and Madrid at same time. Imagine money you’d save on promotional printing costs. Your website could reach four corners of globe and be available 24 hours a day. There is no longer a need to allocate high budgets to printing promotional material for prospective clients, they are able to access information instantaneously, and download what they need. Imagine, neatly organized links that move you, quickly to your destination.
ASP Web hostingWritten by M6.net
ASP web hosting refers to web hosting companies who provide support for ASP (Active Server Page). If you want a dynamic data-driven web site you may wish to embed ASP code into your web site’s HTML Pages. When a user is viewing a web site that is developed using ASP, pages can change depending on actions of user. ASP code allows you to link your web pages to a database, where users can interact with webpage by logging in and using their own personal settings or they can interactively place orders on your web site. What is ASP?
ASP stands for Active Server Pages. Active Server Pages are HTML pages with embedded ASP scripts that are processed on server before page is sent to user. ASP allows you to create dynamic database driven pages, a user can access data in a database, and interact with page objects such as Active X or Java components.
How does ASP work? When you type a URL in Address Box or click on a web page you are asking web server to send a file to your computer; if file is standard HTML, then, when your web browser receives web page it will look exactly same as it did on web server. However if an ASP file is sent to your computer from web server, firstly, server will run HTML code; and then, run ASP code. For example: ASP code could be current date, or time; and other such information.
