    What should I do in this case? Form>HTML solution needed

    I think PHP is the answer for what Im looking for but not 100% sure, anyhow, here goes

    there are two parts to this

    #1

    I have a webpage where customers fill out a form, and wait a little until those entries in the form get plugged into their respective holes in a preselected template

    Right now,
    the form gets emailed to me
    I put the fields into excel
    the template is in HTML code inside a word file
    word file mail merge with the fields in the excel file
    upload the excel file to my server
    operation complete

    side note: the form also has a portion where they can upload images, I organize those as well and put the /img/*.jpg links inside the excel file so they show up in the template

    how should I change this operation around? should I incorporate a programmer to make something with PHP and SQL? what do you think?


    part #2

    I have the domain and webpage ready to go
    I want that file they create to be a subsection of my page, ie if my page is (website (dot) com) when they make a site, it should be (whattheywant (dot) myURL (dot) com)

    and ultimately, they purchase their own URL (through me) and I just mask the forwarder so it doesnt show my page and subURL also


    let me know what you think needs to be done to make all of this simple and more automatic, and if you think its time to outsource, tell me what cost range I should expect


    thanks

    I would do the first part in PHP and store the form data in MYSQL database

    This would be the best solution

    Maybe look at a CMS development.

    Cost for this could be as little as a few hundred to a couple of grand but remember that the cheapest is not always the best

    The second part of your requirements are a bit vague and overly complicated

    You are wanting to replace the domain with another or mask it anyway.

    This is not possible

    You can mask URLs regarding querystrings etc

    [example]
    masked to
