A GREAT DEAL FROM A PIONEER OF CGI

If you have been out looking for CGI scripts, perhaps you have run across the name Matt Wright. Matt is probably the referenced CGI author around.

His Script Archive is where a lot of people, including myself first started playing with perl CGI scripts. Matt also operates ResourceIndex.Com. There is a good chance you might be reading this page because you clicked a link on his perl scripts index. You can also find plenty on PHP and web hosting information there.

If you want to have a hosted mail form, that is reliable, secure, and keeps visitors on your site, FormMail.Com might just be for you. The service is not free, but it almost is. You can try before you buy. Plans start at about $1 per month. Please visit FormMail.Com today!

 

HEY, ALL I WANT IS A CGI MAIL FORM!

Many people write to tell us that they either cannot run CGI scripts on their server- or they just need a form handler and aren't in this for the thrill of the learning experience.

BigNoseBird hears you. If you want your form hosted for FREE, check out FREEDBACK.COM. This free service will confidentially handle your e-mail form.

Be sure to read the instructions before setting up your form. Their program is well documented and a snap to use.
