How many records do you show in 1 page? You need to get only that many records from the DB. Refer below link for DB paging 


How many records retrieving from db

If you are getting all 10000 from db and handling front-end the here is my idea.

1. Define a store proc in the back to return only the specific page records and count variable

   search proc should have pagesize, pageindex, sort,sortdir, totalcount out and other search parameters

2. So you get only the particular page records from procedure with total_record_count as out

3. Map the page records (returned by store proc) to a model list

4. Send model list to web grid

5. Design asp.net mvc web grid with this result model list and use webgrid.bind method where you can total_record_count) to let the webgrid to render paging

Try DataTables JQuery control. This is free and has a option to fetch page by page using ajax. I used it earlier and worked well. Please see this blog for more information
