Hello folks,
I want to build a forum and not sure if my curren web hosting provider would support a forum application such as phpBB or V-Bulletin. So I tried to installed phpBB first as it is free just to test my web hosting service. They have prooved to be not only a provider who does not want to help but also has caused some problems in my mysql data which I cannot trust them to host my forum. So, if you are having good experience with your providers and have set up V-Bulletin or phpBB forum successfully, please let me know.
Thanks

prototyp3, it has ads for free web but does the paid hosting also have ads? Also do they have a program which you can install latest phpBB version from the controll panel?

www.hostrocket.com has what you are looking for. The prices are pretty good also. I've been using them for several years now.

Spookster, seems like a very good deal. I saw one of the item they specified is Integrated Bulletin Board which I am looking for. I'll check it some more. How about their speed?

Yes they have phpBB and some other BB I haven't heard of. Here is a list of all the scripts they have integrated into the control panel

And yes the speed is good.
