    Come on. This sort of research is painfully simple. Get the information, and make a choice based on your needs, expectations, and the amount of money you can spend. Don't forget a reputable webhost with sufficient bandwidth. There are free options for software, but you will need to compare features yourself.

    Well this runs on vBulletin. And you need to pay for that.

    But something like phBB is free (something LIKE that)

    Honestly, http://www.punbb-hosting.com/ (PunBB-Hosting) is the easiest way. There's no domain options or anything, though. It is hosting directly on punbb-hosting.com. Choose your name, and play with the settings. Appoint some moderators if you want.


    Again, easiest option.



    It is the same as FluxBB/PHPBB, just different, in a way.

    Okay. It isn't the best option, but it's nice.
