Textbox can't contain links.

Why a textbox?

Is your textbox databound?
Is your textbox enabled or disabled?
Can the end-user enter text in the textbox?

The reason I ask, is because the asp .net textbox control does not have an OnClick event, nor does it have by default an OnClientClick event.

You could use the  OnTextChanged event, which will fire when the user hits [Enter] or leaves the control.
    Protected Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
        Response.Redirect("http://" & sender.text, True)
    End Sub

It works a bit better if you use an iframe to display the resolved URL site on your asp .net page.
<%@ Page Language="VB" title="MyNav"%>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<script runat="server">

    Protected Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        MyNav.Attributes.Item("src") = "http://" & sender.text
    End Sub
</script>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    Enter an IP: <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" OnTextChanged="TextBox1_TextChanged" ></asp:TextBox><br />
    <iframe style="z-index: -1 !important;" id="MyNav" frameborder="0" 
                            height="400" scrolling="no" src="#" width="600" runat="server"></iframe>
    
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>
