    I have been reading this forum but still dont understand how much space is needed for the forum. Where would you recommend ? Is godaddy hosting enough?
    Sorry this is new for me!

    Any shared hosting should be enough for a new forum. godaddy hosting should be enough yes .

    Good luck.

      Please note that Godaddy's free hosting with domain purchase will NOT work because it tries to add ads to your page and breaks some functionalities. Additionally, their windows servers are not properly configured for php + MySQL, so there will also be problems. Their linux server works though.

        For my experience the best hostings are Rochen and Bluehost, both offers to configure the php.ini for your domain.

          100-250MB of hosting is plenty for a forum for its first year as long as you do not do a ton of attachments. Most hosting for $7-10/mo now has more space than that.

            Please see the 'How much disk space do I need to run vBulletin?' section in the FAQ:
