ASP Hosting Companies - how do they do it?

    Some ASP hosting companies allow users to upload any ASP programs that they
    want. But, as you know, ASP programs can do virtually everything, including
    running components, doing disk operations, even reformatting a hard-disk!

    How do ASP hosting companies prevent users from doing harmful operations
    like that?

    Can you elaborate on this a bit more? Is this done via IIS? Can you give
    me some examples?

    Thanks!
