Forms

Why you need to host your forms to collect data

Sure, WordPress has  a myriad of plugins to accommodate forms.  Since the  hosting for those forms  tends to be hosted by the  website itself, that  means that  longer forms can tend to time out if they are  too long.

In addition, most plugins just send you an email note when  someone fills in your form…wouldn’t it be great to keep  all of that data in one  place? With hosted forms,  you can do just that  and  keep  your data securely stored in the  cloud.

In addition, you can even  accept payments, making one off events and  even  recurring subscriptions (if you use  Stripe) a breeze. Even if your business is small and  starting out, and  all you have  is a contact form, we recommend switching to a cloud-based solution right from the  start and  thinking about every possibility where you can collect information using forms.
