Frequently Asked Questions

What is a static HTML form?

A static HTML form is an HTML form directly inside an HTML page to the extent that it contains HTML elements representing input boxes, radio boxes, checkboxes, and possibly a submit button (or any button at all). Even residing inside the static HTML, the form does not change the data or process it on the fly technically (compared to how a dynamic form might). In fact, a form is that part actually collecting your data. This means that when processing the data received from a static form, usually it is in place that the data to be processed is committed to some server or third-party service, which actually has the processing and the execution of the received data carried out—for example, saving it to a database, sending an email, etc.

Can static website sites have forms?

Yes. A static website, for instance, may involve collection of user contact information and user feedback in the form it has. As such, given that static websites do not have a backend handling the form data, one would have to resort to either of the following solutions, using external services to get a third-party form handling service, for instance. A user's submission of a form would send the data to the relevant service in now to trigger any email notifications.

What is a static HTML?

Static HTML is a file format used to create a static website. It is presented in a browser exactly in the form in which it was stored, with no intervening server processing between the request and the delivery of the website. The HTML file will be the same for all users. This is clearly in contrast to highly dynamic sites, where HTML content for a page is generated in response to user interactions, conditions on the server, or from information retried from databases. So, static HTML is when a highly stable website, usually a simple one, where the content rarely changes and where the advantages of simplicity, speed, and security are clearly seen.

What are the advantages of using static HTML for website development?

Static HTML websites offer several advantages: they're faster to load compared to dynamic sites since there's no need to process data or execute server-side code for each request. They're more secure, as there are fewer vectors for attacks like SQL injections or server-side code exploits. Static websites are also more reliable during high traffic spikes and are generally cheaper to host, with many platforms offering optimized hosting solutions for static assets.

How can I handle form submissions on a static website?

Handling form submissions on a static website, particularly when using Static.app, involves leveraging the platform's capabilities to manage and process forms without a traditional server-side backend. Static.app provides a streamlined solution for integrating forms into your static site, allowing you to collect user input efficiently.

How can you validate user input in static HTML forms?

When you're building HTML forms in Static.app, validation matters. Without server processing, client-side validation is key. Use JavaScript to check user input before form submission. Write custom scripts or use libraries to validate data. Ensure email fields have valid addresses and mandatory fields aren't empty. Static.app helps with forms creation, but use JavaScript for validation. It ensures data integrity before processing or sending to a backend.

What are the best practices for securing data submitted through static HTML forms?

Among the best practices is keeping data safe on Static.app's HTML form. Firstly, host your static website securely. Use Captcha to prevent spam. Comply with data protection regulations for sensitive information. Use third-party services for secure data handling. Ensure tight security for third-party services processing your data.

How does Static.app facilitate the integration of third-party services with static HTML forms for enhanced functionality?

Static.app simplifies enhancing HTML forms with third-party services. Users integrate various functionalities without server-side code. Creating a form in Static.app involves specifying endpoints from third-party services as the action attribute. This enables direct data submission to those services upon form submission.

For example, to integrate a mailing list service, CRM, or database, set the form's action attribute to the provided endpoint URL. When the form is submitted, data goes directly to the service for processing, storage, or other purposes like marketing automation.
