Frequently Asked Questions

Though total global numbers are down from a couple of years ago, forums are now consolidating, so that the more popular ones are growing, while the less popular ones are closing up shop. In fact, the largest online forums have millions of users, millions of monthly visits and more discussions than you could possibly keep up with - and there are many forums that fit this description.

With almost 20 different forum apps to choose from, each of which with thousands of sites running it already, we're confident you'll find one that suits your needs. phpBB, SMF and MyBB are some of the more popular open source choices, available to install with just one click. You can try one, or all, and find the forum software that fits your needs.

Not necessarily. You can choose between having a forum as a part of your website, such as KnownHost, or having your entire website as a forum, like on WebHostingTalk. Some forums are easier to integrate with websites than others. The first decision is about how you want it to work - then making it happen.

At KnownHost, we don't sell any customers junk, just so we can mark up our plans and sell a 50x faster alternative. Doesn't that sound questionable to you? Instead, we offer an amazing value offering at the low price point, so you can get inexpensive managed forum hosting without spending an arm and leg. Then, as your site grows, and you need more resources to handle the load, you can easily upgrade to the perfect plan that suits. HOWEVER - our inexpensive forum hosting is plenty fast enough. We'll put it head to head with anything you'll find elsewhere 10x, 20x, 30x or 50x. All our plans are fast.

Running a forum, just like a business, is a big job and makes huge demands on your time. Choosing managed hosting for your forum is one way to ensure that your time is available to do what you do best, rather than spent dealing with technical issues. Also, managed forum hosting means that you've got a team who have handled migrations, putting backups in place and dealt with all manner of things proactively, instead of just giving you a login and wishing you good luck, like so many unmanaged hosts.
