I conducted an Internet search, and much to my surprise, I discovered thousands of people, much like yourself, wanted to know how to create a PHP contact email form.
Whether you need a form to allow your website visitors contact you, or you need to collect a specific information from your prospects or customers, a PHP contact email form is what will allow you to do it.
The first instinct of most webmasters and Internet marketers, in need of a particular web resource, is to go out and buy some time of software program or subscription service that will perform the desired function.
For example, I wanted to sell advertising on one of my websites and I needed a way to receive the ads my advertisers wanted posted on my site. I wanted to be able to limite the number of characters allowed for the title and description. That’s when I began looking for a web form.
I eventually found a free piece of software that would allow me to create forms; however, I needed to setup a script to process the form and I was unsuccessful installing such a script myself, so I eventually ended up paying a one-time $5 fee to use their 3rd party processor.
Not long after, I learned that I already had access to a web form script through my webhosting service…and most likely, you do to…if you have webhosting with cPanel!
Ideally, anyone searching for a PHP contact email form generator already has a website. The webhosting service provider, for most websites, have a cPanel that you can login to and access a host of web resources.
If you login to your website’s control panel, and click on FANTISTICO, you will find a list of available scripts. From there, look for a PHP email form script.
The newer control panels, will automatically install the script for you; and all you have to do is go to the web address where the script was installed to begin using the email form generator. Your control panel will tell you exactly what that web address is after the installation is complete.
The script is fairly easy to use. You would simply specify what type of input you are wanting to extract from the form user and the html code for the form will automatically be created for you. All you then have to do is copy and paste the html code in your web page.
When setting up the PHP form, you can choose whether you want the information entered into the form to be forwarded to an email address or stored in a database on your server for future reference.
If you need a PHP email contact form, get the most out of your web hosting service by logging into your control panel and claiming the PHP form generator you are entitled to.
