I will be explaining you, How you can add contact forms to static websites or even GitHub pages. The tool, I am using here is known as formspree.io.
The best part about formspree.io is it has no CSS, JS or anything in backend. You just need to add a few lines in the HTML section of your static website to add it.
The tool is some sort of freemium. You can use it’s free plan to try it out. No signup required for trying out free one.
Free Plan provide following things :
- 50 submissions/monthly
- Spam Protection
- Easy to setup
You can easily setup formspree.io, through the following steps :
Copy and paste the following code on your static website
<form action="https://formspree.io/YOUREMAILADDRESS" method="POST"> <input type="text" name="name"> <input type="email" name="_replyto"> <input type="submit" value="Send"> </form>
Replace the “YOUREMAILADDRESS” with your actual email address and you’ll be able to receive all the form submissions to your email that you entered in the code of your contact forms.
On first submission, you need to verify your email address and start receiving form submissions.
If these tool suits the need of your website, then you can upgrade to their Gold or Platinum plan. Plan features are given below :
