PHP usage is common across the Internet. The nature of PHP makes it both easy to use & deploy on existing websites.
A PHP contact form is both easy to create and integrate into an existing website.
Whilst, PHP contact forms are simple, they’re very beneficial. Enabling simple communication between yourself and site visitors.
There are a few ways to take advantage of a contact form. If you’re currently using WordPress there are many different plugins available. This is the easiest option as you will only need to consider configuration with no need for PHP, or SQL knowledge. And you’ll never have to worry about updates!
Contact forms are a great tool but if left unsecured they can easily fall victim to attack. Malicious actors such as Spammers can trick a contact form on your site into sending out spam emails.
At Unlimited web hosting we have a robust spam detection system and we regularly monitor traffic across our services to determine whether it is legitimate. If an account associated with your site is seen to be sending out spam you run the risk of suspension. Therefore, it’s important that you make efforts to secure your contact form with a CAPTCHA.
