You can create 2 types of controls.

1. Custom Controls, which we usually use in our project, with *.ascx extension

2. Server Control, this is what we usually call as Third party control like RadToolkit controls, ajaxtoolkit control, etc

Please find the above listed links, for getting started with your exact requirement.

Hope this helps.
Happy developing :)
