ASP.NET is a web development framework created by Microsoft for building dynamic web applications and services. It allows developers to create robust, scalable, and interactive websites and web services using languages such as C# or Visual Basic. Key features of ASP.NET include:

1. **Web Forms:** A traditional approach for building web applications using a drag-and-drop interface to design web pages, making it easier for developers transitioning from desktop development.

2. **ASP.NET MVC (Model-View-Controller):** A pattern for building modern and maintainable web applications by separating concerns into different components – models for data, views for presentation, and controllers for handling user input and application flow.

3. **ASP.NET Core:** The latest version of ASP.NET, designed to be cross-platform, open-source, and modular. ASP.NET Core is optimized for modern web development and cloud-based hosting.

4. **ASP.NET Web API:** A framework for building RESTful APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that can be consumed by various clients, including web applications, mobile apps, and other services.

5. **Razor Pages:** A lightweight alternative to ASP.NET MVC, providing a simpler syntax for building page-focused web applications.

6. **Entity Framework:** An Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework that simplifies database interactions by allowing developers to work with databases using .NET objects.

7. **ASP.NET Identity:** A membership system for adding authentication and authorization features to applications.

8. **Integrated Development Environment (IDE):** ASP.NET development is commonly done using Microsoft Visual Studio, an integrated development environment that provides tools for designing, coding, testing, and deploying applications.

ASP.NET is widely used for building a variety of web applications, ranging from small websites to large enterprise-level applications. Its flexibility, scalability, and integration with other Microsoft technologies make it a popular choice for web development within the Microsoft ecosystem.
