    Hi Guys,
    I am presently building a website with Adobe Dreamweaver Cs5. Usually, I was prewiewing my progress by just clicking the index.html file but since I added an email form on my site, I need to load to a server in order to try the new email form. Now, my question is why do I need to be on a server in order to try that? Also, how can I test my website online for free without getting a domain name and all that? I downloaded a free software called "Core FTP Lite" but I don't know how to make it work and if I need something else to make it work? Please, let me know if you have any thaught related to this.
    Thanks,
    Yannik

    You need a mail server to send mail. You're only going to get one by having a web server enabled.

    FTP has nothing to do with sending mail through SMTP.

    Thanks for the information. If I have my own domain name registered, do I only need a host in order to view my website online? Are there some free host that let you upload your own domain name (.com)?
    Thanks,
    Yannik
    Ps: I hope I don't give you a headache with all my questions!

    Try this:
    Free Web Hosting with PHP, MySQL and cPanel, No Ads

    Its free and supports php and mysql
    Also i suggest that you do a little tutorial on uploading with ftp. Once you know it it's a peace of cake, and very handy.

    Greetings and good luck.
