It is based on the .NET framework, which makes it very effective when working with other Windows applications. With the web platform, Microsoft offers all the functions that are needed to bring server-based content and applications online with high performance. One of the biggest advantages of ASP.NET hosting is that it is compatible with all of the most important web standards.
