How can i make a forum?

A free forum, one thats easy to make as i dont have a clue about these things,
Also if possible with an address of my choosing.

Any advise and links to websites for free forums would be appreciated.

click here - though you can't host that on your own website. But hosting a forum could cost you a fortune: if it's busy the database will get big and you'll eat bandwidth.

So i guess theres no way of doing it for free?

Il tick this as resolved,
Making a forum is WAY above my head lol
Funny thing is my niece has a 14 year old friend who set one up in a day.
Never thought id see the day when technology would get the better of me :(

It's been recommended in this thread already but I use phpBB for my forums - click here - and run several sites with forums using phpBB running on them:-

and am just about to put a forum using phpBB on another site:-

once I've got my head round a design issue I have with the site that I can't quite figure out the solution to! ;)

click here but you'll need a 'PassPort' account to sign up. It's free, though.

Forumotion definately. You can do so much with their forums from template editing, theme uploading, pure HTML page creating...they are the best i have been with.

Just try it out on this host : [url=click here]free forum hosting[/url]
