Creating a New ASP.NET 4 Web Site.

Step-1: Start by creating a folder called RajWebSite in the root of your C drive using Windows Explorer or My Computer. Inside the folder, create another folder called Site. You should end up with a folder called C:\RajWebSite\Site.which, in turn, contains the Source and Resources folders. You still need to create the Site folder though. If you want to follow along with VB.NET and C# at the same time, you can create two folders: RajWebSiteVB and RajWebSiteCS and use two instances of VWD.


Step-2: Start Visual Web Developer 2010 and choose File? New Web Site or File? New? Web Site, depending on your version of VWD.

Step-3: In the Installed Templates area on the left, choose between Visual Basic and Visual C#.

Step-4: In the area in the middle select ASP.NET Empty Web Site.

Step-5: In the Web Location drop-down list, make sure that File System is selected. The other two options(HTTP and FTP) enable you to open a remote site running IIS with the so-called Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions and open a site from an FTP server.

Step-6: Click the Browse button next to the location text box, browse to the folder you created in the first step, and click Open.

Step-7: Click OK and VWD creates the new site for you.
How It Works
As soon as you click OK, VWD creates a new, empty web site for you. This new
website contains nothing but a configuration file (called web.config.) In the
Solution Explorer.
Because a website based on the Empty Web Site template is just a simple
Windows folder that VWD looks at, the actual folder on disk contains the same file.
An ASP.NET 4 website consists of at least a single Web Form (a file with a .aspx extension), but usually, it consists of a larger number of files.
