No, not with client side javascript. You need a server process to do that.

Have a look in any search engine for 'free guestbook' and you will find many places that will host one for you.

Ah. You have the following choises:

1. Ask your provider if they do not have a guest book facility already in place...
2. Use a free guestbook hosted by someone else (mostly paid by adverts)
3. Get a free guest book script or java program that can run on a web server
(you will have to install and maintain it yourself)
4. Buy guestbook software (is normally nice looking and has software to maintain it)

If you go to http://www.developer.com and search for guestbook you will find many different ones, free, shareware or off the shelf.
