    Yes because you have to enter this url in the membersarea (you have to tell where you use your vBulletin licence)

          No u do not require a domain name and you can download the product using "localhost" as the domain

            if you do use godaddy go ahead and look up a "coupon code", save yourself a few bucks to purchase vbulletin.

              You should realise, other than a domain, you'll also need hosting.
              A good place to start may be http://www.hostmonster.com, http://www.justhost.com or http://www.hsotgator.com which all come with a free domain as I recall.
              There is a section based on hosting too, go have a read there. The domain is an address like the address to your home, the host is where your address points to and where your forum will be kept.

                IMO, i had a really bad experience with GoDaddy.
                http://www.namecheap.com/ was my solution

                  i think the best place to start for a domain would be google

                  and u dont need a domain to buy just enter localhost or intranet
                  i purchased and installed a vb 3.6 for a company for intranet use only.. (quite some time ago)
                  but i was in contact with a "sales person" from vb about it. but still u dont need a domain to purchase.
                  but you do need to fill in the form..
