    Thinking of implementing a forum into a site.

    Ok guys, I'm just in the thought process of putting a small site together.
    I want to be able to include a forum section. And I plan to use phpbb as the template.
    My question is do I need specialised web hosting to put this in place?
    A bit of a newbie question I know
    Or can I just build the site with the forum included and then just upload it to whoever I choose as the host?

    Cheers all,
    Rich

    You just need a webhost that supports PHP and any of the databases phpBB uses. Every webhost does this so you can use any webhost you want.

    Not every Web host does. Just the ones that are worth their salt.

    Try taking a look at the Web Hosting board here on Sitepoint for tips and pointers on choosing a reputable Web host that will meet your needs and your budget .
