For most sites, a free service is more than adequate.
I like Atomz [atomz.com] as you can create a template to look exactly like your pages for the SERP's and in general it's a good alround service.
Google also offer a service for free, though this only works if you're already indexed.

The one I use is Bravenet Site Search:

Atomz and FreeFind both offer excellent services which allow customization.
Perlfect is a good one if you have CGI access.

master.com is also free, offers a bunch of other services, and allows templates

I've had the same question. However, this is for an Intranet, and we can't use a free outside service. Now what?

Someone recommended http://www.htdig.org
the other day. It's GPL, runs on your server. I've read the site, but not used it myself.

For intranet, perlfect is good as is htdig. If you use Microsoft IIS, it has a built in search facility.

Here's another thread on the same subject, which contains links to a couple of other threads, also about site search....
I'm not sure you'll find anything that hasn't been mentioned here.
