    Here are few Acronyms of

    asax : Active Server Application eXtended
    asmx : Active Server Methods eXtended
    ascx : Active Server Controls eXtended


  • #687693
    The Global.asax file, sometimes called the ASP.NET application file, provides a way to respond to application or module level events
    As we know ASPX is the next version of ASP so it's stands for EXTENDED version of asp.
    let's take an example

    ASP: active server pages
    ASPX : active server pages EXTENDED
    asa : Active Server Application
    asax : Active Server Application EXTENDED

    hope it helps
