  • A few questions I need answers to soon.

    Hey! I am new to the forums, but I would like to know the answers to a few questions.

    First of all, how do you install it... And second of all, which domain do you suggest? I have tried phpbb with free subdomains, they suck... So I need some help. Thanks

    • #3

        well, i think i understand what you mean. Well, if you are going to be using vBulletin I suggest you get a domain name. Subdomains dont tend to generate a lot of traffic, unless they are apart of a major website. So, I say go with a domain name.

        if thats what you mean.

                  To be fair, it's really unclear what you were asking. You first asked what domain is suggested that you use. You're the one who chooses what your domain name will be.

                  Then you shouted about a web server. That's a pricey piece of hardware which normally, individuals don't buy for their own sites. They use someone elses servers through a domain hosting package of some sort.

                  Then you asked about a domain company. There is another forum here that is dedicated to discussing which hosts people have had experience with and reviews of them.

                  As far as your original question about installing "it", presumably vBulletin, there are install documents elsewhere here for you to follow.

                    You can get a domain name from GoDaddy and hundreds of other registrars.

                    For hosting, I've seen people mention ASmallOrange, BlueHost, etc. Check the Hosting forum or
