Hey, I have a dot net website (implemented in C#) and I want to add some AJAX features over it. Is this possible or do you have to implement AJAX from the beginning itself?

My personal advice: don't overuse ajax just because you can. Plan carefully where it makes complete sense and focus on those areas.
