I have this code, I want to be able to send the name to another page and in this other page it'll display "Thank you for signing up "Name", Please wait shortly for the conformation. But how could I do this since I have no database?

Would this be the page that the form is submitting to specified by the <form> action attribute?  If so, you can read the form variables.  But first you must correct your form above since you have multiple fields with the same "name" attribute.  Once you do that and specify an action for your form you can use something as simple as:
<html>
<body>
Thank you for signing up <?php echo $_POST["name"]; ?><br>
</body>
</html>

You don't need a database

In this script
contact_send_mail.php
Just add a header to redirect to the new page
// Use the name variable that captured the POSTed name value
// it would be something like this
// $name = $_POST['name'];
header("location: signupcompletepage.php?name={$name}");

Open in new window

Then in signupcompletepage.php
<?php
$name = isset($_GET['name']) ? $_GET['name'] : '';
?>
<!doctype html>
<html>
<body>
<p>Thank you for signing up, <?php echo $name;?></p>
</body>
</html>

It looks like this is already doing what you want.  It would send the request to contact_send_mail.php, and you can see the request variables with var_dump($_POST).  Just make your "thank-you" response part of that PHP script.  Easy!
I have no database?
Why not?  They are free, easy to use, and provide permanent relational storage.  Just get one, and be glad you have it!  MySQL (free, open-source) is one of the most popular and well-documented.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

MySQL / MariaDB are probably the most popular. They are different brands of the same product. MariaDB is a fork of MySQL and interchangeable with it

http://www.mysql.com
http://mariadb.org

I would recommend the above - it is widely used and lots of support

PostGresSQL - also widely used - and arguably a better DB than MySQL but for your purposes I don't believe the advantages are enough to go with this over MySQL
https://www.postgresql.org/

SQLLite is a db that you can embed into your application - not really an option in your case but I am answering the question on free databases
https://sqlite.org/

Microsoft SQL Server Express
A free, lite version of Microsoft SQL Server
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sql-server/sql-server-editions-express

Then there are the NoSQL databases
MongoDB
www.mongodb.com

Firebase
A cloud solution (backend as a service) real time database - used predominantly in front end code to build applications that respond in real time to database changes.

Amazon provides hosted solutions for some of the above with a free tier available for low mileage users.
https://aws.amazon.com/rds/

I don't know exactly what your application is but I would recommend MySQL/MariaDB

Having used SQLite, PostGreSQL and MySQL, my recommendation would be MySQL.  I think my current hosting provider offers MariaDB as a drop-in for MySQL.  The ways to many of the basics in any DB can be found in this article.  The differences among databases are likely to be small, and mostly a matter of syntax.
