I'm curious why you would want to do that? When you publish a website, all files that are .CS/.VB will be compiled into a DLL. People viewing the page have no way to see your source code (they can see the rendered HTML, but that's different than the code you write in ASP.NET.

Granted, if someone could download your source, they'd be able to decompile your DLL's. But unless you give them access to the DLL's or hack into your server, this won't happen. If you want, you can look into an obfuscator that will make your DLL's hard or impossible to decompile: http://net-dll-obfuscation.qarchive.org/

Do you want to hide it from the end user who is viewing your site from a browser? If so, there's no way to do it. Your browser *has* to have that sent in clear-text, otherwise it cannot render it.

There are ways you can make it harder to obtain, but in the end, a smart or persistent person can get to the source no matter what you do.

For example, if you use the "disable right click" trick to make it so people can't view your source, all they'd have to do is disable javaScript and they could access it.  Another option is to simply look at the temporary internet files to see what source the browser used to render the page. In short, there's nothing you can do to keep your HTML/JavaScript/CSS safe from peering eyes.
