    index service /shared windows hosting

    I'm an asp developer and I need a search engine for my current windows/asp project. It needs to search word docs and pdfs as well as webpages.

    I have used MS index server and it seems fine, but it isn't offered on shared servers at interland, where I usually go.

    Any ideas for a search engine on a shared server? It has to be reliable above all.


    thanks very much

    Hello,

    Take a look at:

    http://www.google.com/enterprise/gsa/index.html

    It's the google search application for your own sites. Rather expensive, but don't know your budget. Never used it myself but seen sites where it's been used. The normal google engine is great so this should do what you want it to do.

    I think that is a bit over the top (just a bit ) for what they are asking. Around a year or so ago, I know of a company who contacted them and the quote was close to $65,000 (over 2 years) for crawling up to 150,000 documents.

    thanks for the replies. I am looking at google's free options, as well as other 3rd party services like picosearch, but I would rather use index service if I can.

    The budget is really the issue. I want to keep it on a shared server to keep the monthly costs down, which means I can't install any applications
