ASP is a server-side scripting technology developed by Microsoft.
ASP is a standard component in Windows 95,98, 2000, and XP. It can be activated on all computers running Windows.
Windows hosting means hosting of web services that runs on the Windows operating system.
You should choose Windows hosting if you plan to use ASP (Active Server Pages) as server scripting, or if you plan to use a database like Microsoft Access or Microsoft SQL Server. Windows hosting is also the best choice if you plan to develop your web site using Microsoft Front Page.
