How to save in a data file on server with Javascript

P: 3
Hi I have one question that has been bugging me all day and no one helped me whenever i asked them :)
On my web site whenever you visit it I have a prompt message that ask you for your name.

This is the script:

<script type="text/javascript">

var name = prompt("Please enter your name","")


I want whenever the visitor enters thier name and click OK to continue to the web site their name to saves in a data file in my private space, so whenever i go to my private space and open that data file to see who visited my web site.

Can someone help me how to do this script????

Thank You :)

That will not be possible with JavaScript alone. To save to a private space, you need server-side code. One way to achieve this is to make an Ajax request to a server-side script which saves the name.

A note on prompts: these are annoying on page load - they should be triggered by the user, not forced on them.
