You use border to change the underline.
You can use hover to change colors for mouse over/out

http://www.hyperlinkcode.com/change-underline-color.php
:
<a href="change-underline-color.php" style="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #999999">change underline color</a>

But if i use border, it creates a border across the whole width of the screen and text-decoration  creates only below the text, so i cannot use border here

This code doesnt do a border across the whole width of the screen :

<a href="change-underline-color.php" style="text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #999999">change underline color</a>

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.

You could give the h1 display:inline or float:left to make it only as wide as needed.

aconrad said nothing about using PHP. He just linked to an example.

Try this:
h1{
  display: inline;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #999999;
}
