The frontend can be fully customized and hosted by yourself. Additionally, you can choose to use our backend service, or you can develop your backend. To interact with the backend service, see Public API documentation.

If you choose to develop your backend service, you need to take care of the Dynamics 365 Customer Insights - Journeys authentication and the web services by yourself. If you want the event registration linked to the appropriate user who created it, make sure that you create the Dynamics 365 Customer Insights - Journeys contact record for every new website user.
