When should you consider using a web-hosting company to host your ASP.NET web pages?
The HTML markup for a static web page remains constant until a developer actually modifies the HTML markup in the web page. The HTML markup for a dynamic web page, on the other hand, is produced every time the web page is requested by a visitor to the site.
When the web server receives a request for an ASP.NET web page, it hands off the request to the ASP.NET engine, which then executes the requested ASP.NET page and returns its HTML markup to the web server. The ASP.NET engine allows for the HTML markup of an ASP.NET web page to be dynamically generated for each request.
False. ASP.NET pages can be served only from computers running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista.
For a computer to serve ASP.NET web pages, the .NET Framework and a web server that supports ASP.NET must be installed.
You should consider using a web-hosting company if you want your ASP.NET website to be accessible via the Internet. Typically, it's best to develop the website locally and host it with a web-hosting company.
