A Web application is the ultimate dynamic Web site. It's a new ISP technology that can work with user input to an unprecedented level -- even though it loads like a Web page and is accessed from a Web browser, it behaves like a locally installed software application. It's beyond the level of a typical ISP Web hosting package, so if you need such functionality you'll have to be careful in selecting an ISP provider. Typically such an ISP service will have to be built upon something like Zope, .NET, and/or XUL, and will utilize something like SOAP or XML-RPC to communicate with clients. You will probably not be able to find a free ISP with Web application capabilities.
