    Yes, you can certainly use one of the budget hosts without any great worries.

    If you look around at this forum, you will see that http://www.hostgator.com gets consistently good reviews.

    Another is http://www.downtownhost.com.

    You should start with one shared hosting package and upgarde as your requirement grows. Go with a host which has flexible upgrade options.

    Yes, you will need to purchase a licence first. You can have the choice of buying one or leasing one. I would advise buying one permanently

    As for a host, I've been with about 3 or 4 different hosts now and have recently moved to these guys: http://www.vbulletinhosting.co.uk/. They've been absolutely superb in helping me to switch hosts and their support services is easily the best I've come across.

    Hope that helps.

    Thankyou for getting back to me! I looked at this, and although it does seem good, the one you mentioned works out at 120 GBP per year. Is there anything a little cheaper?

    When looking myself, I see hosts that work out at $5 (3GBP) but that now makes me think they'd be a bit rubbish.

    Correct host for a music forum

    Hey guys. So story is, I used to admin a forum with a guy and we've fallen out. I want the freedom of my own forum, and I'm thinking vBulletin is the way forward. However, I'm reading all about forums, and whilst I get the general gist (that I need to purchase the license first, and then the domain on top of that - could someone confirm for me please?), I'm confused about the host. I want to run a pop forum, similar to UKMix or Flop Of The Pops. I hope to grow into something big, and so I'm guessing I'd need a good hoster? It for sure needs to be a fast host. However, I have little money, and so I'd need something cheap. Could someone help me?

    Thankyou in advance.

    Wayne
