Hi Gopal,

It is actually not cPanel that's running the websites but the web server. cPanel runs Apache web server by default which is not supposed to run aspx pages in default setup. There are hosts who run custom Apache modules that allow you to run aspx pages. You need to check with your host if they have such a facility available.

If you have access to the machine as an administrator, you can enable mod_mono which supports aspx pages. This can be configured in WHM > EasyApache (Apache Update) or by running /scripts/easyapache on the machine. The mod_mono option is in Step 5's Short Options List where you have a choice between Mod Mono (.Net 1.x) or Mod Mono (.Net 2.x).

In addition to cPanelTristan's comments, note that mod_mono only supports ASP.NET, not classic ASP. Complete information, including documentation, for mod_mono is available here:

Mod mono - Mono

Also, mod_mono is intended for expert users only. You will need an experienced, qualified mod_mono admin to help you configure and deploy your ASP.NET applications. Our scope of support extends only to making sure that mod_mono is built correctly by EasyApache, and we cannot help you configure and deploy your ASP.NET applications.
