Handling user entered data?

  • Answered
I want to design a website with registration form for users. It is just like dating website. After user enter their data, it has to be securely stored (according to data protection policy), and can be viewed only by permitted users. Could you tell me how can I achieve this job? Any of your input will help.
Hello Mani123, Thanks for your question about creating a secure website to handle user entered data. In general, when people use InMotion Hosting to serve a website and they want to handle data securely, then they are using the MySQL database service that comes with the account with data being transmitted and stored in a secure fashion. There are normally two ways to approach the solution: building the site from scratch or using an application solution such as Joomla, Drupal, or WordPress. If you're building the website from scratch, then you (or the developer) would need to plan out all of the areas that interact and provide security for your data. The database side is not directly accessible by a customer and your website interface would transmit data to the database - normally via a form. For information on how that can be done, see Setting up a Database to handle form data from a website. You can also do this through Joomla, Drupal, WordPress(or other applications), where many functions are already handled by the application. For example, secure logins would be handled by the application's interface. The application may also allow you to create a form that will directly interface with the database associated with the site. If you want to have InMotion Hosting build your site, you can consult with our Web design team. You can also use the resources provided in the Support Center for more assistance If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know. Regards, Arnel C.
