Hosting and PHP forms
PHP forms are versatile and one of the most commonly used in terms
of contact forms. If you plan to use them on your site, it is important
to consider this from the beginning when choosing your hosting
provider as not all providers will support it. There are many different
options out there and you can easily end up choosing
one that does not support contact forms in PHP. Here are some tips
for choosing the optimal hosting plan which allows the use of php forms.
A suitable hosting plan for PHP forms should include these three components:
- PHP support,
- pre-installable scripts,
- and email setup.
If a hosting provider
cannot offer any web servers which support PHP (Linux), then using script
based contact forma on your site might be difficult. Many hosts also offer
free software and script installation, which includes PHP forms and will
make things much easier. Thirdly it is important that the hosting plan comes
with email account setup so you easily manage the incoming of emails from the form.
When looking for a hosting provider there is not going to be a tick box
that says "Php form hosting", more than likely the phrase
you will be looking for will simply be PHP hosting which
may fall under linux hosting.
After all, not all hosting plans or
providers support PHP and without it your contact forms simply would not work.
The first thing to check in a hosting plan is whether it supports PHP or not.
Another type of hosting is "Email hosting", something that is
serves the purpose and support of PHP contact forms. This type of
hosting has a focus on email, often offering more free accounts, setup
with Outlook ,Thunderbird, etc. Some providers have also included php
forms in their plans so that they can be used quickly on the website.
If you are looking for a hosting plan with focus on PHP supported contact forms,
we suggest you try out any of the two hosting types above. The bottom line is, as
long a hosting plan supports and runs on PHP, you will be able to use PHP contact forms on your site.
