If it is asp files you can't add it to your vodahost webspace as it can't run windows based files such as asp

Its not a matter of converting the file type, its the contents. The contents of an .asp file is ASP programming code, which VodaHost servers cannot interpret. You have to use a different programming language, PHP is the most common. The files can't just be converted to something like a .php and just work, the contents has to change, in this case programmed from scratch.

The simplest solution is to find a php script similar to the asp one you have that has similar functionality. A good place to start is http://hotscripts.com

Creating a data baseand using it on your website is a good idea. Please can someone tell me how do I create it and what software do I need to use to start creating my own data base.

You can create the database in cpanel, depending on what you are trying to achieve you can find a script that does what you need, or if it is something that is more unique you would have to custom create the script to do what you need. Its not really software you have to use, its pages on your website with the code that tells it what to do
