    Pls i want someone to assist me on how i can integrate an email contact form into my web hosting account.

    1.I have just hosted "economy package account" with godaddy. Would the package allow .php files?

    2.Am i going to create a database?

    Thirdly, how am i going to be accessing the submitted data in the "formail.php" in the email contact form below.

    This is the specimen of email contact form:
    <div id="webcontact">
    <form name="form1" method="post" action="formmail.php">
    <INPUT type="hidden" name="recipient" value="">
    <INPUT type="hidden" name="redirect" value="">
    <INPUT type="hidden" name="required" value="name,email">Name -- <font color="#FF0000">*required</font><br>
    <input name="name" type="text" size="25" class="webcontact1" tabindex="1">

    I don't know how deep you want to get into this, but certainly you would need to learn about creating a mysql database, setting up values, and writing a script in php (yes, it works on godaddy) to add it to the database. Then of course you are probably going to want to write a script to view the data in the database.

    An alternative that might be a little faster for you would be to use a Form from Google Docs. You could probably be up and running in less than an hour.
