    The Global.asax file, also known as the global application file, it is an optional file that contains code for responding to application-level events raised by ASP.NET or by HttpModules. The Global.asax file resides in the root directory of base application.
    MVC framework maps browser requests to controller actions and for that global.asax is important, here routes are defined in the Global.asax.cs file in a method called RegisterRoutes(..).
    a route table is created in the application's Global.asax file. The Global.asax file is a special file that contains event handlers for ASP.NET application lifecycle events. The route table is created during the Application Start event.
