You need to install a form submission script on your site first. WestHost offers a perl script called FormMail (http://members.westhost.com/sm_sa_email_formmail.html) that is available for install via the SiteManager although I prefer others like NMS FormMail or TFMail that are available via the NMS Project (http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/). These programs must be installed manually. The TFMail program actually has an autoinstall script that you can upload to your cgi-bin and run. Although it is "expermintal" it does work fine on a WestHost VPS account without any hitches that I have found.

You can also find php scripts that do the same thing. A search on your favorite SE should return results of both kinds. Try "Form scripts php perl" as a search term.
