I am using to host my website.  The server logs me out after few minutes. How to stay logged in continuously?

If I could change the server timeout so it does not forgets server variables.

Also, do I need to store all the variables in a DB and retrieve it every time a page is called?

    The page itself probably posts back after about 15 minutes or so.  If not the page, then the session on the server times out in about that much time.  You can certain approach GoDaddy and ask them to remove this restriction, but you may find yourself facing unintended consequences.

    Yes, store them in a database and retrieve them each time.  That is the way most web sites work.  If you are on shared hosting, it is very unlikely that they will change any of the server timeouts for you.

    User login and authentication on each page is a complete subject of it's own.  You need to open a new question for that.  Tell people what methods you are currently using so they can make appropriate suggestions.
