Hello,

I know nothing about ASP scripts but I want to create a visitor registration page for my webiste, which is hosted on GoDaddy's "shared" hosting service. There tech support for scripting is non-existent. How do I build the script? Where does the script need to reside on the host server? Any help greatly appreciated.

Hey texanweb...

So, you've got one of GoDaddy's Windows hosting plans, correct?

Any page named with an extension of .asp should run your scripts.  You can build it with standard HTML code, but insert asp code between <%  and %> delimiters.

This your first ASP work?  You can get an overview of the scripting language various places on the net like:

  * http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972337.aspx
  * http://www.w3schools.com/asp/
  * http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/  (ASP often runs as an extension of another scripting language, like VBScript)

Are you looking at connecting to an MSSQL database to store the visitor information?  Then you'll also need to dig into ADO tutorials.

Maybe you want to look at open source tools which provide examples of what you're planning to do:

If this isn't helping, feel free to explain what you're intending to do further.
