    Well i use http://jam3s.co.uk its great for hosting sites, you can have more than 1 .com, these are called addon domains & parked domains. Parked domains allows the new .com the same access as the old .com, addon domains allow you to redirect a .com to a subdirectory.

    you can design first, or buy first its totally your choice, depends how you prefere to do it

      I dont quite fully understand your question.
      You need somewhere to host the forums and also some way of pointing users to it e.g. www.vbulletin.com/forum/

          If you're about to buy, you will be able to download the latest version of vB for a year from purchase date. So you may as well have the latest version since it's more featureful

          PHP (coding language) and MySQL (database format) are what your forum uses to run. You would be hard pressed to find a host that doesn't have either of those.

          As for web hosts, there isn't much difference between location (except for very slightly slower response time if it's further away from you). Just remember if the company itself isn't in your country then you'll have to add currency conversion costs on top of the price, so buying from a company local to your country is usually best. Companys often own servers elsewhere anyway if you're especially tied to a US server and you live in the UK for example.

            Domain names dont really matter. Personally I would sooner own a .com domain over a .co.uk domain. Mainly because .com is more international.

            You normally have to pay extra for a MySQL database, so do check that you are buying one in your package.

              Pay for a MySQL database? Maybe on an ultra-cheap ultra-budget host, most will include MySQL databases for free no problem, though you might sometimes encounter a limit as to how many you can have.

                  Yeah, me. I give unlimited MySQL databases for free. As do many other hosts. Like I say I've only ever seen paid-for MySQL on budget hosts, I don't recall ever seeing it elsewhere. I don't know what to say, it's like asking for an example of a fish that lives in water. Too many examples to choose!

                      Sure, if you give some details of what you need and where you'd like the host/server to be based.

                      Alternatively try http://www.webhostingtalk.com, those guys know their stuff and you'll get a swift response.

                      As a basic rule, you really do get what you pay for. However despite their very low price compared to what they give you, I've heard many excellent things about Site5.

                            For those stats you could have a great deal of members, provided the servers are decent and not overloaded with customers as so many are.

                            ]SK[ I'm UK based and host in the UK, PM me with what you need and I'll see if I suit you.
