Wait to Instantiate COM Objects in ASP Pages

When you are unsure if you need to instantiate an object from your ASP pages, as in the case of instantiating a COM object to access SQL Server, it is better not to use the Server.CreateObject method. This method creates an object immediately. Why go to all the trouble of instantiating an object that may not be needed, wasting server resources and hindering performance? Instead, declare the object using the tag. This way, the object is only instantiated when one of its methods or properties is used for the first time, assuming it is ever used at all.
