Got a question, hope someone can answer... Flipping domain name business iPage web hosting is important or not? Thanks for any answer or 2. Another question... How do I get data to go from one page to another?.

For example, I am asking the user for information on one page, and then the next page performs a few calculations and then acts as a results page...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

For a tutorial on ASP try here:.


You can write it any text editor such as notepad but you must make sure that your server is configured to run ASP code..

The example I gave was only very simple and obviously it can get a lot more complicated than that, but you can do some pretty nice things with just basic ASP...

Thanks Goldilocks (got it right this time - D'Oh!!).

When you say the server must be able to run ASP, there may be a problem there. There is no server with this site..

I am just developing a simple tool for engineers, and HTML is quick and cheap to do it in (when you know how, anyway). This will be a complete isolated iPage site where all the files necessary are kept with the page as it goes on a CD - can I do this? Or does it have to be run on a webserver?..

Comment #3 someone may have to correct me but I don't think you can process forms in any way without it running on a server. I am quite new to all this myself so if anybody wants to disagree with me feel free but I am pretty sure that you have to have the iPage site running on a webserver..

Unless... I'm getting out of my depth here but instead of using a serverside language, maybe you could use Javascript to process the form. Javascript is executed by the browser so no server is needed. I suppose it depends what you are wanting to do with the data..

Hopefully somebody else can help you out a bit more.....

It doesn't need to go back into a database or anything, so I think that I can get away with a Client-Side Script..

I'll post when I find out if it works or not...

ASP cannot be used in the manner in which I wanted. It requires IIS (Internet Information Services), or PWS (both for Windows), or something, to be installed before it can be used..

Unfortunately, these are options to the standard install, and in the case of NT4 require a bit of jiggling as it is in the Options pack, and not the OS installation at all..

Guess it's all down to Javascript then. I wonder if I can just post the data to another HTML page with the scripting in that one?..

Comment #6

If it is just a case of passing data entered on one page to another then I am 99.9% certain that you can do it with Javascript..

Unfortunately the little Javascript I knew is very rusty so I don't think I can help you. You might want to try asking in the Client-Side Scripting forum where somebody a bit more knowledgable than me is likely to see it..

Good luck!..
