Thank you for your help. I think it better to go for using iframe.

Using IFrame, you have to load the web site every time and the info you retrieved is too big. The speed is not fast in this way.
You can use the HTML2Pic function or Third-Party Libaray/application to generate the thumbnail of the the web site. After converting, you can save the Web Site thumbnail picture in your server. When the customers access, if the Web Site has been generated
to thumbnail pic in your server, it can be displayed directly. If this Web Site hasn't been gevereated to image, you can convert it and save the image to server. The thumbnail is much smaller than using IFrame to retrieve all, so I think HTML2Pic is better.

Hope it helps.
