The focus of this category is on ASP, ASP.NET, and ASP.NET Core, the latter of which is currently supported by Microsoft and the open-source community.

Active Server Pages (ASP), later known as Classic ASP or ASP Classic, is the first server-side script engine created by Microsoft for dynamically generated web pages. Released in 1996, it was replaced by ASP.NET in early 2002, although it will continue to be supported until 2020 on Windows 7, while its use in Windows 8 will be supported for at least ten years from the release date of that version of Windows. ASP is proprietary software.

Also created by Microsoft, but released as open-source software under the Apache License, ASP.NET is the successor to ASP technology. It is a server-side web application framework for web development, producing dynamic web pages, applications, and services. Released with the first version of Microsoft's .NET Framework, ASP.NET was developed on the Common Language Runtime (CLR), and designed to allow programmers to write ASP.NET code using any supported .NET language.

Created by Microsoft as well as the open-source community in 2016, ASP.NET Core is the successor to ASP.NET. Also available through the Apache License, it supports the Linux, macOS, and Windows platforms. While versions 1-2 retained support for ASP.NET, version 3 works only on the .NET Core, with no support for the ASP.NET Framework. Nevertheless, while being a new framework, built on a new web stack, .NET Core has a large degree of concept compatibility with .NET.

ASP .NET Core components include Entity Framework (EF) Core, Identity Core, MVC Core, Razor Core, SignalR, and Blazor, each of which are appropriate for this category, along with any other websites focused on ASP, ASP.NET, or ASP.NET Core.
