    You are recommended you purchase this from Jelsoft directly. But Some people on Forums are selling License for cheap rate. You can also take a look there, if license is transferable

    vb is suitable for both look & customization!

    Did you try vbulletin ever ?

    I am sad for those, who purchase IPB license. I was with IPB for more then 2 years, but at last, I left it & now with vbulletin.

    Anyway, it only depend upon people choices

    Good Luck !!!

    I don't think I'll consider vBulletin anytime soon. It doesn't suit my needs, it's not as user friendly for members, and the admin control panel is awful. There's other issues, too. Like how it's based on older coding, bloated with features that aren't needed, and the database size can grow out of control.

    There's Invision Power Board and others. It depends on ones needs, not what other people are using.

    Nobody is selling anything. I'm not making any profit off of any software sales and same with the other users. Anyone who blindly says vBulletin is the best, clearly doesn't know much about forums.

    I gave my vote to vbulletin, it truly deserves to be on top. Fantastic software bundled with great support.
    That's all you need to run a serious business with.

    Everyone doesn't like it. That's why there's different software for different needs.

    You can use this to compare. Also try the official sites for demos. You don't want to pay for or get stuck on a software you don't like, even vBulletin.
