Winding Down Webform.com

Published Feburary 2022. Updated November 22, 2022.

After 10 years, Webform.com is being discontinued as a hosted service.

Webform.com was founded with the intention that it could help fund the open-source version of the Drupal module. While the site did see some periods of substantial revenue, it has never generated enough income to actually pay for the develoment time of the service itself, let alone have profit enough to spend on maintaining the open-source module. After years of minimal maintenance, it's time to conceed that the service is not sustainable.

NOTICE: Fraudulent Charges

Between February 19, 2022 and February 22, 2022, an automated script (known as a "bot") started using the sign-up process of Webform.com to validate credit card numbers. This is sometimes used as a strategy by a malicious person to screen stolen credit card numbers for ones that are still valid.
