PHPMailer Script Hosting Location

  • Answered
Just wondering - this may be a ridiculous question - but can I host the php script on a different server than the html form is displayed on? I'm going to give it a shot - but I thought I'd try to save some time if it isn't possible due to security.


Thank you for your question. While, it is possible, it depends on the specifics of your setup, and how you are passing the information between servers.

Typically, I prefer to have the scripts I am running on the same server, since it usually helps with load time, as it is not fetching something elsewhere.

Also, when you are pulling from separate servers/location, it can be more susceptible to connectivity issues, etc. This can be affected by the reliability of the server hosting the script.

Thank you,
