Yes, You can  do it using placeholder.
There's an option with HTML 5 to specify a placeholder.

<input name="name" type="text" placeholder="Your name...">
@Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.Name, new { placeholder="Your Name..." })

How ever this is not supported in all the browser so you can do it using java script. Please check the link below:

If you are using Ajax Toolkit in your project you can do it using TextBoxWatermark
