ASP.NET Web Services
Web services are components on a Web server that a client application can call by making HTTP requests across the Web. ASP.NET enables you to create custom Web services or to use built-in application services, and to call these services from any client application. We suggest the following progression of documentation to help you navigate through the related topics.

Hello:
A webservice is an inter-operable remote procedure call. You call methods on remote machine, their implementations is a black box from developer point of view. Any of the links provided in other answers may help.

Dhaest: webservice are not constrained to http transport. You can use tcp, msmq, named pipes or even smtp.
asimnazir123: Webservices are not out of date. ASMX webservices are, WCF are still web services.

Best regards.
