I want to show the content of any external website in my web project that is built using ASP.NET/C#.

- so far I have tried the HTML iframe tag
<iframe id="myiframe" src=""></iframe>

and this does not display anything (empty iframe) because this tag only works with pages that are within (contained) in my own project.

- I also tried to use JQuery to load the content into a div tag using the following JQuery load function but nothing seems to work.
jQuery(document).ready(function () {

this code just return error Not Found for any website, but trust me, it does exists.

any idea how can I achieve this approach of loading the content of any external website within an iframe or with any other alternative using C#?

Thanks in advance!

What can it possibly mean, "load website"? :-)
Why? You can always point to any resource in any accessible site using an anchor...
Your cross-domain policy may prevent doing it with an external domain. This is generally a bad thing. Use your own resources, and reference other sites using an anchor.

load website = show a website embeded in my own page. If you have ever used the iframe tag you will know what I mean. Actually, I´m not trying to access any external resources in fact, I just want to embed any website page within the iframe tag but my problem is that the website is not being displayed in the iframe. I put that link in the src attribute just as an example, not meaning that I effectively want to access to an anchor of another website page.

Okay, you want to load the page (not site) and embed it in one of your HTML elements. I already answered: 1) your cross-domain policy may prevent doing it with external Web site; 2) I would not recommend doing it.
Did you try "general" jQuery .Ajax()?

You can do it in simple way using jQuery UI library.
As displayed in below example :-
