MOREnet maintains GoogleMini™ Search Appliances which index and provide a mechanism for users to search your web site. The search page and results can be customized to fit your web site's needs.
Due to lack of use, MOREnet will be discontinuing the availability of the GoogleMini™ Search Appliance. New web sites set up in the Managed Web Hosting Service will not be configured with this built-in search capability. Currently hosted web sites which are using the built-in search capability may continue to do so for now, but be advised that MOREnet is in-process determining a retirement date for the GoogleMini Appliance.
