Exclamation Question for web designers/experts

My wife is trying to get her business website up and running. We're currently looking at different hosting sites and most of them provide several templates to use for the web design.

One thing my wife needs on her site is an online form that can be submitted on the site, and will then be emailed to my wife, like this one :

So is this something that's easy to add to a site and more importantly, can it even be added using those generic templates on the hosting sites? Or is this something that has to be written in HTML or whatever people use now days? Besides this form, the rest of her site will be very basic, so this is the only thing that's holding us up.

That site you linked is using Formmail perl code.

Not sure if all hosting companies will give you access to run a script like that.

I know Godaddy has their own code to create a contact / submit form.

If you need a very basic site, I can help you out and host it for you as well.

PM me if you want to discuss.

There are alot of formmail scripts out there now days. Wouldn't be hard to configure it for your host. Most hosts have a custom made one for their sites.

and dont use perl scripts for sending out email use a php script, its way faster and simpler. I'll create one for you and the code for the page for $100 and give you tips etc.
