    I want to start a forum. What is the best free software that provides both free domain and hosting. The only one I know is phpBB from www.phpbbnow.com
    Are there any similar things
    SEMrush

    MyBB is my favorite. Fast, good feature set and has some great themes available for free.

    I tend to favor the ionisis UFBB ( ufbb.ionisis.com ), but then again, i'm a bit partial ;). It IS, however, very simple, and free.

    Were you asking me, or the Mod that came before me? If you were asking ME, then you can find more info at http://ufbb.ionisis.com - but if you were asking the Mod, then i'll just come back and delete this post.

    vBulletin is not free... I suggest SMF due to it's opensource and have a lot of plugins.
