    vB doesn't provide hosting.
    It is quite easy to install. There is an option for installation for $135.00

      Installation takes all of about 5 minutes.. Depending on how fast a connection you have. The longest part of the task is uploading the files.

        See, this is the one thing I dont like about vBulletin. You guys really should offer some kind of hosting/forum upkeep service for people who aren't too tech-savvy. Think of all the extra income involved, too.

          vb is very easy to install and to maintain. My 15 yr old son installed it once for a buddy of mine.

            Yes, it's easy if you're technical. If you're not, it can be very difficult. Just because your 15yr old son can do it, doesn't mean it's easy for everybody else.

              But you are missing my point entirely. You really dont need to be technical. All you have to do is a couple very simple edits to the config.php file, upload the files and run the script.

              Yes you might make a mistake and get an error message. But that is very easy to get help with.

              But whatever.

              I find it better to do it yourself. You then know what is going on and arn't relying on others to keep your board up and running. There is a bit of a learning curve, but people in general seem to pick it up fairly quickly..

                Well If I asked say, my grandad, to install vB, he wouldn't have a clue. So you do have to be technical to a degree. That's what I'm saying. Not just anyone can do it.

                    LOL I'm not arguing with you, just having a friendly debate. Chill.

                        So long as you can read english, your good to go

                        The instructions for installing the software are very easy to understand. When I installed mine, I had no idea what I was doing. Fortunately, the install instructions were very easy to read.

                          Seems a few of you have gone off track about what this guy was looking for. They don't seem to care about installing it. So how this turned into that convo is beyond me. He was looking for a hosting solution like IPB's where the board is included with the hosting, and there are no commitments or anything. You don't need to pay for a 1yr license for the board AND pay for hosting. What he's talking about is like what IPB offers where the board and hosting are all in one, where there are no comittments, no seperate costs, and is a simple and cost effective way for people to have forum only hosting, board included.

                          The plan he's talking about INCLUDES the board. Whereas if you were to go this route with VB, you would need to pay the yearly fee AND the cost of the host...vs. the $20 a month plan he shows that includes both...with no commitments.

                          No, VB does not offer such packages. You will need to spend the $85 for a yearly license AND whatever the hosting fee per month is for a cheap host. (You get what you pay for host-wise.)

                          Its doubtful Jelsoft will offer any such thing anytime soon.

                            I just find it amusing that people here think just anyone can install a php-based application as though it's second nature.

                              But... it's just so simple!
