Classic ASP is a server-side scripting language that was the latest thing in web app development back in the 1990s. Since then, it has been increasingly ousted by ASP.NET as the next-generation technology for the same purposes. Thanks to its advanced features (such as separation of concerns, object-oriented programming model, cross-platform and cloud support, rich tool set, and more), ASP.NET has become a top instrument for creating dynamic, scalable, responsive, and secure cross-browser web products.
In this article, we will discover the reasons for switching from Classic ASP to ASP.NET and the business benefits such migration will yield. But first, let’s understand the difference between these technologies.
Classic ASP is not bad for a budding entrepreneur when starting your journey in an IT-driven business. It is instrumental in building simple web apps and sites with low traffic. As long as you stay lean and cater to a small consumer pool, this technology will suit you more or less. However, Classic ASP doesn’t take you far on the bonanza road. With the growth of the clientele and expansion of your organization, it won’t be able to cater to all your increasing business needs.
By contrast, ASP.NET is a more powerful tool for creating complex and elaborate solutions that perform well under heavy traffic and display minimal response time. Besides, attempts to reach a larger consumer audience require broad compatibility of your digital product that should run on various operating systems, and ASP.NET excels at it. Plus, your site or app will likely appeal to a more significant number of users who will appreciate its interactive and user-friendly interface, developed with the help of ASP.NET.
This simple comparison shows the edge ASP.NET has over its earlier version, so vibrant businesses should consider migrating the Classic ASP app to the younger environment.

The same is true about Classic ASP, which loses out to its successor ASP.NET in many technical aspects, making the older technology unsuitable for businesses bent on growth and expansion.
The unquestionable fortes of ASP.NET serve as a primary motif for legacy app owners to migrate their solutions to the newer technology. Such a switchover has some challenges to overcome.
