For #1 and #2 you need some kind of scripting support as suggested above.

The code to search other web sites can easiliy be taken from that particular site. For instane you can use this code to search with google.

<form action="http://www.google.com/search" name=f><span id=hf></span><table cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0><tr valign=middle><td width=75>&nbsp;</td><td align=center><input maxLength=256 size=55 name=q value="">
<input type=hidden name=ie value="UTF-8"><input type=hidden name=oe value="UTF-8"><input name=hl type=hidden value=en><br><input type=submit value="Google Search" name=btnG><input type=submit value="I'm Feeling Lucky" name=btnI></td><td valign=top nowrap><font size=-2>&nbsp;&#8226;&nbsp;<a href=/advanced_search?hl=en>Advanced Search</a><br>&nbsp;&#8226;&nbsp;<a href=/preferences?hl=en>Preferences</a><br>&nbsp;&#8226;&nbsp;<a href=/language_tools?hl=en>Language Tools</a></font></td></tr><tr><td colspan=3 align=center><font size=-1>Search: <input id=all type=radio name=meta value="" checked><label for=all> the web</label><input id=cty type=radio name=meta value="cr=countryIN" ><label for=cty>pages from India</label></font></td></tr></table></form>

To implement searching your own site, you have to do programming, best and easiest with Perl.

is the .net your talking about is Microsoft .NET Web Hosting? #1 and #2 requires serverside scripting but #2 could be found on free feedback servers (bravenet is one, alxnet is also). Does your hosting support either ASP, ASP .NET, PHP, ESP, ColdFusion or PERL-CGI?

If you are not concerned much about security, you can implement an ordinary client side JavaScript password using this code.


   1.  Put the first code into the HEAD of your HTML document
   2.  Change protectedpage.html to your protected page
   3.  Add the final code to the BODY of your HTML document  -->

<!-- STEP ONE: Copy this code into the BODY of your HTML document  -->



<!-- Begin
function password() {
var testV = 1;
var pass1 = prompt('Please Enter Your Password','');
while (testV < 3) {
if (!pass1)
alert('You Got it Right!');

<!-- STEP TWO: Change protectedpage.html to your protected page  -->

//  Change the following URL to your protected filename

var pass1 =
prompt('Access Denied - Password Incorrect, Please Try Again.','Password');
if (pass1!="password" & testV ==3)              
return " ";
// End -->

<!-- STEP THREE: Copy the last code into the BODY of your HTML document  -->

<input type="button" value="Enter Password Protected Area" onClick="password()">

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>> view-source:page will reveal the password.

mplungjan, I did warn the questioner about that part. See this:
> "If you are not concerned much about security, you can implement an ordinary client side JavaScript password "

Now can I have your vote please?

Yeah - "If you are not concerned much about security"
I would say: "If you are completely uninterested in any kind of security" ;)
