Setting Up a Free Forum
This will teach you how to make your own free forum, with no ads in just a half hour! The forum software will be phpBB3. For an example of a phpBB3 forum visit http://rodead.com
phpBB3 is open source, meaning that you can edit the forum code.
Sign up for an ad free x10hosting account (note: it dosen't have to be x10hosting but I strongly recommend x10hosting, the details are the bottom.) (http://x10hosting.com).
Once it's confirmed and all that download phpBB3, you can go to the next step while it's downloading. (http://phpbb.com).
Watch this tutorial to install it. If you do not understand anything just please contact me.
Your done and you have your free forum set up. (Wow, wasn't that easy?)
Getting a .co.nr Domain For Your Forum:
You can get a forum domain like www.myforum.co.nr free of charge.
The catch is that you have to put this code on your website:
<a href="http://www.freedomain.co.nr/" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.freedomain.co.nr/images/bars/anima.gif" width="88" height="31" border="0" alt="Free Domain Name - www.YOU.co.nr!"></a>
INFO ABOUT X10HOSTING:
-400mb Disk Space
-You can have up to 3 mySQL databases.
-Supports PHP, Perl and Ruby
-Fantastico De Luxe
-No Ads at all (unless you sign up for the ad enhanced account.)
Getting a Toplevel Domain For Your Forum (costs money)
If you want a .com, .org, .net, .biz, or .info I recommend http://www.domainredirect.com/, it costs $10's a year (€6.4239 or ?5.0624)
I will shortly do a tutorial on the phpBB admin panel.
