    A cgi-bin is a directory where cgi scripts are stored and can be executed.

    Most free ISP's will charge you for being able to execute cgi scripts in your domain however there are some that don't.

    Most e-mail questionaires are handled by cgi's written in Perl however you can use other other languages like PHP, C++ etc.

    There are many tutorials on the web that will cover this topic in detail.

    Check out http://www.cgi101.com/class

    It's a good place to start. Good luck.
