How can I convert an ASP.net website to an HTML website?
Almost everything on my website is in ASP.net, like all the login features(Login, loginname, PasswordRecovery, etc...)

Not to be the one to ask dumb questions, but if you do not want to use ASP.NET then what do you want to use? PHP, ColdFusion, Java? You will be better of deciding which server language you want to use then posting on their websites. If you do not want to
have any form of server side language then I suggest you don't bother with the website at all, because there is no way to keep a user database and authenticate clients without running server side code.

If your hosting company is not providing the service you require, stop giving them your money and find someone more suitable.

I could not agree more with Dan Bracuk. That said, if you still want to go with linux hosting then you must physically translate your website to another server language. Personaly, I would recommend PHP (I will probably be banned for saying so). Study the
language then translate each page physically. When I say translate I mean you must create a new PHP for each .aspx page that can do the same as the .aspx page. Good Luck!
P.S. Do bear in mind that neither SQL server nor Access will work on Linux. Just incase you where using one of these for your user database.

Agreed with above, An asp.net hosting service is what you really needed.

but i have already made everything in asp.net format. I would like to convert the asp.net format to a html format
You can't. How do you suppose to run the server side code if you are going to convert it to HTML? HTML does not have a server side. It's just the markup you see on the browser. It's true that asp.net controls renders as HTML elements. You may be able to
convert those asp.net server controls to HTML controls but you won't get the server side code if you do so.
any other format that is compatible with linux based servers.
then go for PHP, JSP, JSF etc.
Either you have to completely rewrite the code using a different technology or move to a different hosting company which support asp.net, as all the above users already said.
Being said that, you have one option left. You can use mono project to host your asp.net application on apache. Following links will help you with that
I've never done that myself. But I think you will not be able to use all the asp.net features in mono.

What programs are used to make php?
Any text editor would do (Even notepad). Personally I like Dreamweaver, Eclipse, Netbeans etc. If you have further queries related to php, please head for php forums. We are asp.net folks here. :)
And i cant just go to another hosting service as i have already paid for all my services and they wont refund me...
Sorry for saying this. But why did you develop the website with asp.net, blindly? You should really have ask from an expert or do some pre research on the feasibility before choosing the technology.
