Setting up a contact form on your page is one of, if not, the essential pieces for building a website; next to having a phone number or a street address listed.

Have you recently upgraded your email to a domain-specific address and now need to change where your contact forms notify you at? Perfect, you're in the right place! Giving visitors an up to date and accurate way to reach you means you're more likely to get the results you set out to get! In this article, we will learn how to change your contact form email quickly.

Pro Tip: Although you may use multiple email addresses for notifications, the drag and drop builder's contact forms can only support one address at a time. If you need to receive notifications at multiple addresses, we recommend setting up email forwards from the first address that point to the other addresses.


Updating the Contact Form email

  1. Log into your HostGator website editor and begin on the page that contains your contact form. Pro Tip: If you are updating multiple forms with different fields, you will have to run through these steps separately for each form.
