Description of FormToEmail Remote, remotely hosted form service
FormToEmail Remote, processes web forms. A web form, is a form on a website, such as a contact form or an order form. When a website visitor completes a form and hits the send button, the contents of the form are sent to FormToEmail Remote, who then process the submitted data and send it by email to a pre-configured email address. Typically the email will be sent to the website owner, but it can be sent to anyone.
Typically, form submissions are handled in one of two ways, on the website's own server, or on a remote server. FormToEmail Remote is a remotely hosted service. This means the webmaster does not host the form-processing software on their own server, they simply send the form contents to FormToEmail Remote to process it. This has a number of advantages. It means the webmaster does not have to configure the form processing software, which often means editing programming code, such as PHP. It means that they do not need to have PHP on their own server. It is easier to set up. The set up is the same for any website, so can be used for many different forms on different servers.
The form on the webmaster's website, contains code that sends the contents of the form to FormToEmail Remote. The processing of the data and the sending of the email, are done instantly. The webmaster uses their own form, or can get a ready-made form from FormToEmail Remote.
There are two services, a free service and a Pro service. The free service will process any number of forms, from any number of websites, and send out an email. The Pro service does the same thing but has a number of configurable options.
FormToEmail Remote is a sister-site of FormToEmail.com which has been offering form processing software since 2003. Some users find programming scripts confusing, or do not have the correct setup on their server to process forms and send emails, so FormToEmail Remote was established to help these users. It is also a very convenient place for web designers to handle all their customers' forms under one account with consistent setups, instead of having to figure out individual server requirements for processing forms and sending email.
Although the service is aimed equally at complete beginners and web professionals, it is made in such a way to be as easy as possible to use. At all times, ease of use is the priority. This is appreciated by both groups of users!
