A Complete Guide to Setup Contact Form and SMTP on WordPress for FREE

After struggling for four hours, installing a couple of plugins and watching 10+ different youtube videos, I finally set up the contact form on my website for FREE.

As I was going through all these steps, I realize there has to be a simpler way and hence I decided to write this blog.
Most of the blogs and tutorials online only mentioned steps of installing a contact form plugin and integrate it to a page. But I had some issue with the SMTP server which means I had to do much more than just installing one plugin. If you don’t have any issue with the SMTP server of your hosting company, then it’s just 10-minute job for setting up a contact form.

If you don’t know what SMTP is, don’t worry just keep reading.

I am explaining step by step process to set up your contact form. I am using two scenarios for this.

Method 1: Install a ‘Contact Form 7‘ Plugin

Method 2: Use a 3rd party service for the email server and then setup contact form.

       “Remember: Every time you use Flash on a website, a puppy dies!” Avinash Kaushik
