    ok i want vbulletin im gonna get about 100 post a day and is it 85 dollars a year and after i get a license wat can i do

    It's $85/year for a leased license, and a one-time fee of $160 for the owned license. If you plan to run vBulletin for more than a year, the owned license is cheaper. With both licenses, you can download updates to the software for one year. After one year, you can optionally pay $30/year, with each $30 earning you one more year. So, if you payed $190 up front, you'd get the owned license, along with two years of updates.

        Yes. vBulletin requires a web server that includes PHP (minimum version 4.1.0) and MySQL (minimum 3.23.33) installed. As long as you choose a host that meets these requirements you will be able to install and run our software.

        Note, for best performance and security I recommend the following versions:

        PHP 4.3.10
        MySQL 4.0.24
        Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
        Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

          Web Hosting has unbiased reviews of web hosting.

          for example Site5 ($6.95 plan).

          P.S. I do not work for Site5.

            Before you go with anyone... really look at the complaints... FWIW, I have about 15 websites hosted with as they are really cheap ($35/year)... BUT I have had really bad luck lately with my SQL databases crashing... Hell, I lost two more today!

            Really, look at this VERY CAREFULLY as you want a good inexpensive option to start but you want someone that is relaible and that can later upgrade you to a good dedicated server later if your forums get moving...

            Oh yea, did I say you want CRON... it is the key to setting up automatic backups on a server and it can keep your hair in your head when you forget to back up your database... I am about bald after the week I have had because I have not been good at backing things up... vB is goint to help save me from myself!

              $35 a year is extremely suspicious. I think anything less than $80 is a gamble.

                  You really would need to do some research. Some users have comment about Site5 asking them to move when their mboards got a little busy.
