Web form

A webform or web form also called an HTML form, allows users to enter and send data to a server for processing. The processing can include storage or transfer to a different environment, e.g. via e-mail or API. Modern browsers render web forms using HTML, JavaScript and related web-oriented languages.

Webforms resemble paper forms or database forms. Users will fill out webforms using checkboxes, radio buttons, or text fields and other types of fields.

After filling fields and clicking the “Send” button, the website (and server) process the form and usually send it to the recipient’s e-mail, including the information that the user input into the form.
