Today I am going to explain to you how to implement a free contact form on your website within just 2 minutes.
Steps to Add/Setup a Free Contact Form
Follow the below 3 steps to implement a free contact form on your website.
Step 1: Download free contact form
Download the free contact form script provided by FreeContactForm.com. The best thing in the free contact form script is that they provided with the full source code. So, you can have the full access to change its design and any setup.
Step 2: Upload the form files to your website
Now extract the downloaded free contact form script upload in your server. I recommend you to create a folder called “contact” or “contact-us” and inside that folder upload all the files. If you use a cpanel, then you should upload them and extract the files without any hassle. If you are using a dedicated server like Digital Ocean, Cloud hosting and Cloudways which doesn’t provide cpanel, then read here how to upload the files via FTP(File Transfer Protocol).
Step 3: Install the Contact form Script
After extraction, you can see the list of files of the free contact form script. From them, you need to run freecontactforminstall.php file. Suppose your website is www.example.com and your files are in “contact” folder, then go to the address http://www.example.com/contact/ freecontactforminstall.php
Then you will see a window like below-
Fill your Email Address where you want to receive email. Enter Subject Headline as your website name or other and Click on Install My Form.
