    New to Web Design

    Hi everyone, new to web design and to this forum. Never posted anything before took me 20 min to figure out how to post a question so I hope this is where they go. My question is what is the best type of form to use on my site. This is my site https://www.karriecaresbankruptcy.com the form on it works, but everyday at 8am some one fills it out with all ones and not sure who it is. Its not a big deal right now but not sure if it will get worse. Again I am new to coding, took free online classes and haven't had any help. Would like to know if the site looks good or not as well. Thanks in advance.

    With the script that you're using, you don't. The best thing you can do is to make a custom script in whatever language your host supports and filter out obvious spam such as -1 and 1 in fields.

    You're using HostGator right now...you're new, so I'm not judging, but that's a big mistake. HostGator is part of a consortium of hosting companies called EIG (Endurance International Group) that are known for downtime and horrible tech support. So you may want to fix that before you fix the form...a lot of the bots filling the form out could stop just from that alone. If you're getting random gibberish data at the same time each day, it's not human...it's a bot looking for an exploit.

    Thanks for not judging. Who is a good host in your opinion. And what did you think of my site.
