    I understand I can embed my form on my website. Is the database hosted by my web host, or separately by Jot?

    I am trying to determine what version of MySQL (and any other requirements) of my host server needs to be.  Or is it a concern anyway?

    Hi Ian,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    All data submitted through your forms are securely stored in JotForm. None of the data is hosted locally on your end. So you need not be concerned with additional requirements. All you need is a host that can display/embed HTML code and you should be good.

    If you do have additional feedback, you are more than welcome to contact us again.
