I'm assuming you already know HTML. You need to check out tutorials on PHP.

yah i know html but i think what my main problem currently is is that i can not find a web hosting site that:
- totally ad free
- allows php
- allows mail/sendmail commands

All the free hosts I know don't allow sendmail, for obvious reasons (i.e. spammers abusing it).
But AwardSpace (http://www.awardspace.com/) is a free webhost that is ad-free and supports PHP. Best free host I've used so far.

ok so i made an account on that site its pretty nice so far so i got this little email script to test the php
//if "email" is filled out, send email
$email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
$subject = $_REQUEST['subject'] ;
$message = $_REQUEST['message'] ;
mail( "MYEMAIL@BLABLA.COM", "Subject: $subject",
$message, "From: $email" );
echo "Thank you for using our mail form";
//if "email" is not filled out, display the form
echo "<form method='post' action='mailform.php'>
Email: <input name='email' type='text' /><br />
Subject: <input name='subject' type='text' /><br />
<textarea name='message' rows='15' cols='40'>
<input type='submit' />

Are you sure mail is not blocked on the host you are using?

I'm using that site u said... So idk so if I just pay for a site like yahoo or this award one you said then will I be able to sendmail? Is sendmail just blocked on free webhosts? To solve this problem do i just need to pay?

I said that "All the free hosts I know don't allow sendmail", AwardSpace included. AwardSpace doesn't allow sendmail.
If you want to send mail, you will probably have to get paid hosting.
