You need some server side language.

PHP, ASP, JSP, Python, CGI, etc. If your host doesn't allow any, then, sorry, just can't work. Get a better host.

all i say is, use asp, because i think ASP was designed by Microsoft?Why is that a reason to use ASP? If anything it's an incentive to avoid it: it costs lots of money to have a platform on which it works (unless you intend to write all your ASP scripts in Perl). Besides, this is Microsoft, the company that gave us Internet Explorer :p

ok, well i just know he has a windows server, which is made by Microsoft right (last time i checked), and Microsoft made asp (i think cuz they got 900 different programs that deal with it, so they must have made it) and it might be the best choice, although i haven't tried using asp yet i'm going to start...

Everyone should use Windows (Vista of course), Internet Explorer, MS Word, MS Paint, Frontpage, Access, and ASP?
Yep. You're trapped in the Microsoft marketing web. It's powerful and influential, but you can resist!

Heh.

Rocksonmetal, ASP isn't that bad, but VBScript (the default language for it) is. VBScript is an absolute horror. ASP has now rather been upstaged by its younger sibling ASP.NET. ASP.NET, at least using C#, is cross-platform portable thanks to Mono. Classic ASP, however, is not; it doesn't even run on other servers on Windows (and IIS is a poor excuse for a server; bear in mind, too, that Linux and other UNIX-based OSes have the upper hand in the server market), and I suspect Microsoft will send it to the Graveyard of Obsolete Software soon enough. Learning it now is not a good career move (although why am I complaining? You'd be generating more income for me on down the line when your clients realise that if they want to run anything other than IIS, they've got to either pay $500 for Chilisoft or get someone to translate it all for them :)).
