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 and search for guestbook you will find many different ones, free, shareware or off the shelf.
