    The "Forums" on is running vBulletin 3.8.x, an older version but you can download and use it if you want after purchasing a VB5 license. The non-forum pages are not vBulletin powered, I do not know what they use for them, it may be custom, it may be wordpress, not sure.

    A vBulletin 5 Connect license is a one time payment of $249 and it includes all future versions of VB 5.x and all future and past versions of VB 3.x and VB 4.x as well. You can run any ONE version on a live site as well as have a 2nd private test site. (Test sites are usually htaccess password protected, easiest way to keep them private.)

      They use Joomla (v1.5) for their other pages.

        It sounds like you're talking about two issues. Hosting and forum software.

        1) you will need to find a host (to run your forums) 1st. vB does not host your forums
        2) while currently you can only purchase vB5, you can run any version (vB3, vB4 or vB5) but you can only run one instance. You can not run a vB3 and vB5 at the same time.
