Blocking all but specified URLs on iPad

Please don't shoot the messenger!

My business wants to put ipads on counters (with security cables) to allow customers to use our website.  The business wants to block all other websites through the browser.

How can this be achieved? Is there a 3rd party browser that can do this, or do we need a small/simple apple app that launches a cut down version of Safari...

Any tips and pointers would be appreciated..

Thanks...

I second the above comment.

This two fold approach would be the best solution.

Control access to your Wifi network using hardware based controls (MAC address).

Control access to websites by using a internet filter (proxy) to lock down what websites are accessible.  Set ipad to use that proxy service.

To add to the above comment, if the 'gateway' value on your Wifi network was the Internet proxy, regardless of what a customer changes on the ipad they will still only be able to browse what the proxy allows....

Best of luck....

Thanks for the advice everyone - I'll look into the proxy method first up. The 'guided' option looks interesting too -/
