  3. XenForo

  4. Enjin

  5. IPS

  1. I have been looking for a website host other than Enjin. I just hate that site because of all the ads and you have to pay for EVERYTHING.

    Thanks, techboy001

  9. Buddy, nothing's ever "free"
    Even with MyBB, you're gonna need somewhere to host it
  10. Building on that, even self hosting isn't free, you still have power, internet and cost of a computer prices.
  11. You could get a VPS if you want full flexibility, and you can PM me for a nice vps hoster that I know about which are dirt cheap.

    Feel free to read about what a VPS is etc online
  12. My community uses IPS Community Suite 4, and it does everything we need and more, but it does kinda have a heavy price tag....

    To be quite honest, I don't see a need for that. If you had that kind of budget, I would suggest purchasing XenForo and a nice theme, along with some paid addons, like the resource manager or XenPorta.
  14. Personally I'd go with:

    - An OVH vps (about 5 bucks a month).
    - NamelessMc (free).
    - A theme (~15-20 dollars depending on the person you hire to create it, so price can vary).
  15. Thank you, NamelessMC is exactly what I was looking for!
