Hi Folks:

If I have a web page hosted by a web hosting company, is it possible to send data automatically to that web page from Arduino that is connected to internet.

Cheers!

You could send data from an arduino client using a GET request to the server hosting your web page, but it would depend on the programming on the server to do anything with the data sent in the request.
Google forum search: Use Google Advanced Search and use Http://forum.arduino.cc/index in the "site or domain:" box.

Ciao,

as Zoomkat said look if your hosting solution has, for example, a server side scripting language like PHP.
If You want to store uploaded data than You need also a database server like MySQL (or write to a file, but often this is not allowed, for security reasons, by most hosting services).

You can also take a look at Pachube (http://www.pachube.com) that is an online service for displaying (and contol) devices using Internet.

Ciao,
Marco.

Thanks for your help, Pachube seems to be the answer.

Cheers!
