Contact form comes on first priority for any organisation as this may led to establish one to one communication with their customers.

Here in this tutorial, we make you learn how to create simple contact form and applying validation over it using jQuery and PHP.

We have created a simple HTML form with four fields- Name, Email, Contact No., and Message.

we used following PHP mail() function with four parameters to send email as follows:

mail("$to", $subject, $message, $headers);
  • Here, $to variable is to store reciever’s email id.
  • $subject is a variable to store mail subject.
  • $message is a variable to store user’s message.
  • $headers contains other email parameters like BCc, Cc etc.

You can download our zip file or simply follow our code and edit it to use.

// After sanitization Validation is performed
if (filter_var($email, FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL)) {
if (!preg_match("/^[0-9]{10}$/", $contact)) {
echo "<span>* Please Fill Valid Contact No. *</span>";
} else {
$subject = $name;
// To send HTML mail, the Content-type header must be set.
