  • . . . Pre-Sales Questions . . .

    I am interested in Buying vBulletin, and before i do so, I got few questions!

    Will it be hard for me to install and install hacks?

    Which hosting do you recommend?

    I am new to vBulletin and don't know about how to maintain a good security, will I have to worry too much about this even when my forum grows to around 100,000 members? I know there might be many who will be a smart ass try and get through holes some how!

    Is Support FREE?

    How can I renew the vBulletin, when it times to. Can I do it by paypal?

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Depends, do you know how to edit a configuration file/run a install file that does everything for you and how to upload files via ftp and xml via a web client? If so, yes.

    2. HostGator

    3. As long as you stay up-to-date, such as if theres a patch level released, try updating as soon as you can.

    4. Only if you have a license. (Or a mod / admin or a user will post you need to post in the right forum / show your licensed )

    5. From the Members area you can click "Renewals / New Purchases" and renew your license.

    Hope that helps.

      No, its not hard to install, just need to upload some files, configure one file, and run an install script.

      Hosting, i recommend hostgator. $9.95 a month, pretty damn decent.

      vBulletin is very secure, most very large forums run it. Jelsoft will patch usually within 24 hours of a security threat being found, so any problems can be solved quickly.

      You can renew through the members area, and yes through paypal.

      Support on this forum and is free.
