What is the .ASHX file type?

Associated with the ASP.NET Web Handler (ASHX) file type, the .ashx extension denotes special handler files that can be used to process HTTP requests by ASP.NET-powered web sites. ASP.NET is a proprietary web-oriented development and runtime platform by Microsoft, related to the earlier ASP (Active Server Pages) technology, but completely re-worked to become part of the .NET family.

Basically, an .ashx file is a text-based file that contains a small portion (often, one line) of C♯ source code, an implementation of any server-side actions desired for handling a specific URL (Uniform Resource Locator) query. ASHX handlers are activated through URL's being mapped to them via server configuration.
