Crafting your unique HTML form is the heart of the process. Utilize a text editor to add the desired fields and styling to your form. Take inspiration from the example provided, customizing it to fit your specific needs. Make sure to replace the $API_URL with the one you received in your email (check your spam folder as well).

<form action="" method="">
  <label for="name">Name:</label>
  <input type="text" name="">
  <label for="email">E-mail:</label>
  <input type="email" name="">
  <label for="message">Message:</label>
  <textarea type="text" name=""></textarea>
