    Original thread title: once i make the form do you host the php file as i do not have a backend website?

    All the works are done here in JotForm. Once you create a form and embed it to your page or share the link then it is already available. So if the user hit the submit button, the form submission will be sent to submissions page.

    You can set up an email notification alert so that you will be notified via email once there's a new submission.

    Please refer to this guide:

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
