    Actually freehosting sites that make you make a free forum site as well.

    You might want to look it up in the internet.

    Ok, but if I don't have a good knowlege of php I had to hire somebody... his services to create a forum will be worth the money. How much does the installation and setup of the forum cost, so then I could self-administer it? phpbb or vbulletin for example.

    The site you linked to is using phpBB, which is free. You can download it and set it up yourself.

    @paulvincent

    You should think about going the 'already made route' like TechnoBear listed. Forum software can be quite complex to build with a full set of features, and you would most likely spend quite a lot to get such a thing custom built.

    You will likely still have to hire a web-designer to brand the site for you, but your money would likely better be spent on branding rather than re-inventing the wheel.

    Regards,

    Can we customize the phpBB forum according to our need? or there is any restrictions regarding uses of this free forum code?
