  • Will there ever be hosting?

    Will there ever be hosting plans by jelsoft for vBulletin. To be honest, I can't afford my own copy right now, and don't know if I want to spend so much money and what could be a hit or miss community. I believe that you guys would make great $$ if you started a $10.00 a month leased vBulletin or something to that effect. If there are sites that do this legally please direct me to them. I don't want pirated software. Thanks!

    I can't say for sure but I doubt we will ever be involved in providing a hosting option. It's certainly not something that would happen any time soon. Sorry.

        You can search for free hosts that offer cPanel w/ PHPMyAdmin, PHP, and MySQL.

        They are rare but some do exist. You can use one until you get money to buy hosting.

            It is against the license agreement to do "forum hosting" with vBulletin.

            Hosted forums are a bad idea because you are rarely able to get a copy of the data even if you offer money.
