Automatic website registration to receive password protected articles, which are instantly e-mailed or opened for viewing by new subscriber.
Our website has traditionally been used as an information site, although our intention has been to make it a commercial site. With hundreds of hits everyday, there is little return on our efforts. We've revamped the site and now we would like to invite viewers to opt-in and join our database by offering them articles upon registration - see attached zip for an example.
This project involves subsription and user information gathering, opt-in, and automatic availability of article(s) upon opt-in. User details automatically entered in two separate databases and forwarded in a confirmation e-mail as back up.
The function would have to be compatible with our service provider's capabilities, please have a look at our hosting company's requirements for our account (UNIX) + MySQL.

Our website has a specific look and it would have to fit in with the overall design.
Mandatory information to capture would be: first name, last name, e-mail address, opt-in consent, country of residence; Desired information to capture would include: street address, city, state, postal code, telephone number and fax number, and a "how did you become interested" and/or "where did you learn about our site"-type questions.
The articles are simply incentives to collect interested parties' contact details and willingness to receive notification of our courses and product promotion, so only one level of user.
