  • Greetings, i want to buy a Vbullentin right now

    I don't have a host, do i need one?

    I am making a site through blogspot.com and want blogspot to be the main page and vbullentin to be the community/forum of the home page

    How can i do this?

    Yes you do need a webhost, I'm not suire if you can use blogspot and vBulletin together quite like that.

      Yes, you need a host. If you are just starting then a low end host like hostgator will work fine.

      I would download wordpress, upload it to your new server and then have it as the main index. Then you will want to have vBulletin in the forum directory. After that, there was a wordpress/vbulletin bridge available over at vbulletin.org - I am not sure if it still works or not though.

        Yes, You need a host with these requirements on the server:



        Minimum System Requirements
        A webserver with PHP 4.3.3 and MySQL 4.0.16 installed

        Recommended System Requirements
        PHP 4.4.2 or 5.1.2 or later
        MySQL 5.0.19 or later.

        Space required

        With vBulletin there are 2 different types of disk space usage:
        • Web space - For the PHP scripts and images of vBulletin.
        • MySQL database space - Which is separate from Web space, and you need to make sure your host gives you enough space in that department.




        Once you have a host and ready to purchase you may go to this link: https://www.vbulletin.com/order/

        And Continue with the purchase.


        By the way this thread: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.phpt=181384

        Has a "Test" File that you can Up-Load to your server which it will tell you if it is compatable or not.

        Also Any manuels can be found on this page for further help or just to see how to install:

        Good-Luck

            You can go to http://hostgator.com (as one instance of a fairly cheap and reliable host) click on the plan you want, purchase it. They accept paypal, checks/money order and credit cards.

            Once you have your server and decide to purchase vBulletin - if you have problems installing the software then Jelsoft can offer an installation service which will run you....what is it? $120?

                    If you buy a host with one of the two recommended above, or another that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements then you should be fine for the time being.

                    The host themselves will not be able to supply vBulletin to you, although most will have CPanel and will offer one click installs of some of the more popular free forum software.

                    I would purchase the hosting first and then grab the vBulletin license second. You really can't go wrong with purchasing a vBulletin license for technically it is the best forum software available when you compare feature to feature, speed, and the vbulletin.org community versus another forum mod community.

                          Yes, the host i would reccoment is is "hostgator" or "bluehost" there cheap and reliable.

                          Also, no.. you can NOT have them on the same frame.
                          But you can have a live link NAV bar that when they click "forum" persay, it will direct them to your forum.
