what are the mechanics involve in saving data in a database where the data was entered thru a form/page on a website?
In other words if I have a web form exposed to the outside world (www) and someone entered information on it filling the questions asked on the form, how is the data saved in a database.
If my database is in Africa and I created a form (survey) that is on the web. how are the answers to the questions saved  or transmitted to a database.
Please provide concepts/techniques and examples if possible. thanks

If you are application (survey) application and database server is on different server then I recommend you to go with web/wcf service as middle tire application. So you need to create the web/wcf service application to fetch and save the data to/from your survey application which consumes the service.

Where is your site hosted (because the same data center also provides you with a database hosting as well)

I am just providing you with a link to create a n-tier application and I hope this will be helpful

most webhosting have mysql with you access using phpmyadmin all you would need to do it make a form to  talk to the database using programming language like php,asp.

I would recommend that you use adobe dreamweaver as it can connect to the database and outfill the all you connection for you name can auto generate the forms for you.
 

1. create database fields using phpmyadmin
2. select the programming language
3. use dreamweaver to connect to your database(this will hake all the code you need)
4. use dreamweaver to make your forms
5. sort the website style
6. test
7.go live
