    Can we host a form on our own website?

    Asked by Justine Laurier  on May 04, 2016 at 02:58 PM

    Is it possible to host an entire form on our website, and by ''hosting'', I don't mean embed a form. Let's say we want our developper to work directly on the form and integrate a new method of payment not supported by jotform ?

    The self-hosted version of JotForm was previously provided for purchase, but it has been discontinued due to our development team no longer having the time and resources to support it:


    Since self-hosted JotForm Application and JotForm Engine were discontinued, I'm afraid that there is no way to host JotForm forms on your own servers.

    With that said, you can build your own functionality even with our online forms (forms on jotform.com), by passing data from the form to your own PHP page, where your own PHP page would provide a functionality that our service does not yet support:


    However, you still could not use this method for building your own payment processing, as collecting credit card or banking details through our form fields is considered a phishing activity, and is forbidden by our terms:


    You can build any other functionality or integration through using your own PHP page, and sending data to it from your JotForm form, except collecting/processing payments.
