Hello,

 

This requirement can be accomplished through site.com and force.com both. The deifference between site.com and force.com sites is, in force.com sites we use visulaforce pages while on site.com there is no vf involved. For details refer:

Can see this is an old thread, but there is an alternative if you aren't familar with using APEX or force sites.
Right now we have a few of our orgs doing this who have thousands of form submissions related to contacts and leads.
