Suppose you’re looking to create a contact form on your static website without having to worry about the costs associated with your website hosting.
In that case, you might be interested in serverless contact forms.
These types of contact forms work by sending information directly to the email address of the person who created it, thus bypassing the need for an intermediary and ensuring that there are no extra charges.
Fortunately, you have the option of using HeyForm as your serverless contact form solution.
HeyForm hosts cloud-based forms that your users can fill out with their email addresses to get in touch with you from anywhere without leaving your site.
We’ll explain how HeyForm works, its benefits, and how you can set up a serverless contact form. Firstly, let’s discuss more serverless contact forms.
The traditional way to set up serverless contact forms
You can use API Gateways, AWS Lambda, Amazon S3, Simple Email Service (SES), and Amazon DynamoDB to facilitate and process users’ messages without relying on external servers.
This allows you to streamline and simplify the way you send, receive, and track all forms of customer communication, such as emails, chat messages, faxes, and more.
The method above sounds ideal for developers and tech experts. But for a general audience, it’s safe to use a ready-made solution that can provide you with a ready-made serverless contact form.
