first compress the csv list to binary stream, secondly increase the timeout in web.config to the specific page:


<location path="<the-page>.aspx">
        <system.web>
                <httpRuntime executionTimeout="250"/>
        </system.web>
</location>

FYI, ExecutionTimeout specifies the maximum number of seconds that a request is allowed to execute before being automatically shut down by ASP.NET.
The default value for this attribute has been set to 90 seconds in ASP.NET 1.x and was increased to 110 seconds in ASP.NET 2.0.

if you are using asp FileUpload control, here's a tutorial how to achieve this:
