XSP is a simple, standalone webserver written in C# that hosts ASP.NET's System for Linux and other Unix operating systems. As well as running on the mono runtime for Linux it also runs on the .NET runtime, making it usable as a lightweight web server on any .NET supporting platform.[1]

XSP was originally the name of the internal project at Microsoft that became ASP.NET. The name pays homage to the original name of what became ASP.NET.

XSP is also a term for the eXtensible Server Pages technology in Apache Cocoon.[2]
