    you'll need a domain name (from godaddy, networksolutions, register, etc)
    and a hosting account (millions to chose from) that supports php/mysql

          Step 1) Buy a domain name

          Step 2) Buy a hosting package

          Step 3) Upload vbulletin and install.

          Voila, you have a website.

              vBulletin is a forum, which is a form of a "website". I'm a bit confused by what you mean by "website" because that's a rather broad term. A website could be a forum, a blog, a storefront, or any combination of things.

                Before you get started developing your own message board, the first thing I recommend is using our vBulletin demo to get familiar with everything it takes to run a message board. It can be a complex task, and you need to be sure you're ready to tackle it.

                You can set one up for your own use from this page:


                The demo is active for 24 hours. If you feel you need more time, reply to this ticket with the DemoID and ask for an extension.

                You will also want to use our manual as a reference while learning the controls. The manual can be found here:


                It covers most of the basic controls for operation of the software.

                Once you have decided to purchase, there are 2 license choices.

                Owned License ($180 USD):
                This license is a perpetual license. With it, you can run the software forever. It includes email support and 1 year of software updates.
                After the initial year, you can optionally renew access to software updates for a fee. The fee is currently $40 USD if done within 60 days of the expiry date or $60 after. You will still get email support even if you decide to not renew.

                Leased License ($100 USD):
                This license is good for 1 year. After the year is up you must either renew the lease, upgrade to an owned license or remove the software from the server. It also includes all software updates and email support for the term of the license.

                You can order the software here:

                You will also need webhosting and a domain name. vBulletin requires a web server that includes PHP (minimum version 4.3.3) and MySQL (minimum 4.0.16) installed. As long as you choose a host that meets these requirements you will be able to install and run our software.

                You can purchase the domain name at the same time you contract hosting. Most credible hosts now support both PHP and MySQL, and can run our software. We do not make official recommendations, but we do have a hosting review forum here:


                You can also look at, an independent review site. Sometimes you will find hosting specials there that aren't available elsewhere on the web.
