Contact Page For A Business

Recommended Posts

Are there any options outside of telling customers to phone a business on one's "Contact Us" page?

 

I've skimmed a few forum topics here and also visited many (now) defunct free web site form/email script sites. All seem to indicate that free cgi scripts are extinct or banned from use on our web sites for forms.

 

As an entrepreneur that's just getting started, I have to do a lot of DIY things for my web site. Having to invest in an external-hosted contact form handling system is not the most economical way to start a small biz.

There are many scripts out there that you can use as a start. You may just have to secure them yourself.

Make sure there are no holes in the script that would allow malicious access to the server or be able to send spam.

As someone w/o scripting knowledge, I will have to base my choice of script on what I read on the coders' websites -- on their integrity and knowledge about what they're doing. (Unless there's a site that rates scripts for degree of security that someone can share.) I see some advertising their scripts as being secure against spam, so I guess that's what I'll have to go with. Thanks.

Rad74J,

 

Do you use any CMS-like software/script (Wordpress, Drupal, Virtuemart etc) for your online business?
