What is the difference between ASP and ASP.NET?


I'm new in here and interested in going into ASP. I want to know the difference between asp and asp.net. Which is better or much preferred in developing websites?

Appreciate your help.

ASP.net is better for developing websites.
we can include our asp file in asp.net.
ASP.NET is a framework for building web sites and web applications.it is is a server side scripting technology that enables scripts (embedded in web pages) to be executed by an Internet server. An ASP.NET file can contain HTML, XML, and scripts. advantage of asp.net over asp is its rich set of controls ,events, html controls etc so easy to work in this framework

ASP was discontinued in 2002 (and is no longer supported by microsoft) in favor of ASP.net (which is still being used). Most of us who use asp use it to maintain old websites.

The biggest difference is that Asp is fully scripted (never compiled) and linear (only rudimentary support of objects). Asp.net is fully object oriented and uses a just-in-time compiler, so even though you can edit the text in notepad and never have to compile it manually, it does compile so runs much faster and more efficiently than asp.

If you are interested in maintaining an old website then asp might be worth learning, but I would never recommend starting a new project in asp.
