Let’s attempt to coin a term here: “Static Form Provider.” You bring your HTML
<form>, but don’t worry about the back-end processing that makes it work. There are a lot of these services out there!
Static Form Providers do all tasks like validating, storing, sending notifications, and integrating with other APIs. It’s lovely when you can delegate big responsibilities like this. The cost? Typically a monthly or annual subscription, except for a few providers and limited plans. The cost is usually less than fancier “form builders“ that help you build the form itself and process it.
