Client side validation and server side validation
Client side validation Vs server side validation
There is a usual question that which type of validations is better or best? Server side validation or Client side Validation ?
Validations can be performed on the server side or on the client side ( web browser). The user input validation take place on the Server Side during a post back session is called Server Side Validation and the user input validation take place on the Client Side (web browser) is called Client Side Validation. Client Side Validation does not require a postback. If the user request requires server resources to validate the user input, you should use Server Side Validation. If the user request does not require any server resources to validate the input , you can use Client Side Validation.
Server Side Validation
In the Server Side Validation, the input submitted by the user is being sent to the server and validated using one of server side scripting languages such as ASP.Net, PHP etc. After the validation process on the Server Side, the feedback is sent back to the client by a new dynamically generated web page. It is better to validate user input on Server Side because you can protect against the malicious users, who can easily bypass your Client Side scripting language and submit dangerous input to the server.
Client Side Validation
For example, if the user enter an invalid email format, you can show an error message immediately before the user move to the next field, so the user can correct every field before they submit the form.
As both the validation methods have their own significances, it is recommended that the Server side validation is more SECURE!
