Possibly both. JavaScript is not a way to validate a form exclusively.
It is a way to make it more usable - as you don't have to reload the
whole page when there is an error - but it is not a security measure.

Your ASP needs to validate the fields as well, then you have a chance
to stop wrong submissions.
