Have you voted for General Talk today?
Not yet, but I've been busy taking it easy so I've been limiting my computer time a bit. I'll have to though at one point.
Yeah, ProphpBB is quite good for a free host but make sure you post on your site at least once a month or it will be removed for inactivity with no chance of getting your site back.
What other hosts have you used before?
I didn't say I WILL be coming out with a forum again, that was just a suggestion I thought of for if I ever do get the itch to run a forum again. It most likely won't happen for a long time... too many health issues going on right now, otherwise I'd love to.
I've used a fair few hosts in my time. Probably one of the worst hosts I have ever used is 000Webhosts. Took forever to get the confirmation email, took forever to get passsword details for Cpanel... I was pissed. All I wanted was a simple Website to go along with the forum I had at the time on Pluto Hosting, and all 000Webhost did was practically give me hell. And then, when I finally got my Cpanel details, I swear I spent more time twiddling my thumbs or posting on my forum as the Cpanel took forever to load as well. Big piss off right there and I now understand more than ever why a lot of people hate that host. When asking for advice on what to use for advanced hosting, if I heard it once I heard it a thousand times "whatever you do, DON'T use 000Webhost!) and then I get this long winded rant thrown at me about how bad they were. Never believed it till I saw it for myself, and now days even I'm reluctunt to suggest 000Webhost to a new forum owner. I will gladly recommend almost anything but these days.
