ASP.NET is quickly becoming the platform of choice for web site development.
So what is ASP.NET?
ASP.NET is part of Microsoft’s .NET Framework and allows developers a feature rich foundation for online web applications.
It enables web site development in a variety of languages including the popular C# and VB.NET.
The official ASP.NET web site provides more information, including some great tutorials.

How do I get started?
Microsoft provides a free version of Visual Web Developer called Visual Web Developer Express that provides an easy to use WYSIWYG interface for web site building.
Visit the Visual Studio Express home page
One of the unique advantages of ASP.NET and Visual Web Developer is that you can treat each page component like you would in any standard windows application. That is you can code events for buttons without having to worry about the web site posting/request mechanisms. ASP.NET takes care of them automatically.
In a nutshell, ASP.NET is the quickest way to build feature rich web applications.
What sort of hosting do I need?
A web hosting plan that offers ASP.NET 4.0, 4.5 and 4.6 and SQL Server 2012 or above is a good start. We also support SQL Server 2014 and 2016.
