The easiest way to get your forum online

If you want to set up a free forum on your website, there's no need to start from scratch. At 123-reg we have the perfect forum solution for you. phpBB is an open source bulletin board system that can help you set up as many internet forums as you want, build active communities and engage users in interesting discussions.

Forum hosting powered by phpBB:

  • Users
    With forum hosting from 123-reg, users can register, read posts and create new ones, or publish comments. They can format their post, insert links, images, emoticons using BBCode. Any user can share files by uploading and attaching them to the posts.
  • Moderators
    Can manage the forum using different tools available.
  • The Administrator
    Is in full control of the content, the functionality and the look of the forum. He can configure and customise the board how he sees fit, using numerous plugins.

    Both moderators and administrators can publish on the forum a poll on a certain topic and set the time limit until when the users can answer.

With forum hosting you are also able to create a phpBB board in your native language, as it supports most every language.
