I agree that server side would be the best choice for this

Any number of things would work for the application as described, since it's pretty simple. If Lars is running on a shared host, though, he might well find that he's stuck with using PHP, since most of the less expensive shared hosts seem to only support PHP and possibly Perl/Python.
The good news in that case would be that PHP is pretty user friendly, and it's got a low bar to entry (although it's easy to shoot yourself in the foot, too). Also, PHP has some of the best documentation I've ever seen.
If you're interested in learning one of the client side scripting languages, I have experience in the common ones. Let me know and I can put together some links, but be sure to look up what your host can support first.
