Forumotion is absolutely THE

Forumotion is absolutely THE BEST. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to start a website or forum. I, myself, own a Forumotion forum and it is totally awesome! Best of all, it's FREE! Forumotion also has its own support forums.

One note - no sql dump

One note - no sql dump provided. If you will decide to move to own stand-alone forum - you can't transfer all users/content. Better find forum hosting with export function.

Pros: Forumotion is very

Pros:

Forumotion is very easy to use, and it does not take long to get your website up and running. Their admin control panel is great and very easy to use. Their uptime and reliability is unmatched from any other hosting provider I have seen, and when they claim 99.99% uptime, they mean it. Never once in my 3 1/2 years of working with forumotion sites have I seen a website go down.

The portal feature is also very convenient. This is something that is not always easy to set up with other forum solutions. (such as a clean install of phpBB or myBB). Another interesting feature is the ability to convert between phpBB3, phpBB2, punBB, or a very old version of IP board. The conversion has never taken more than 15 seconds and seamlessly retains all posts and users. It is worth noting that forumotion significantly modded these forum softwares, and they do not give the exact same functionality as a clean install would give, but the consistency in their services makes up for it.

Cons:

My biggest issue with forumotion has always been the lock-in. They do not hand out their databases and will not do so for any price, meaning that if you ever need to move hosts, you are likely looking at starting over from scratch. Their staff isn't very helpful on this matter either, and will not assist you in moving your website under any terms. Forumotion has the basics needed to get a forum started, but if your site grows beyond what forumotion can provide and you want more control over your forum, your options are very limited.

Summary:
Forumotion is a solid free forum hosting provider that has excellent uptime and is very easy to use. The lock-in has been enough to keep me from starting my more recent websites with them, however. While they provide all of the basics for free, larger forums may have larger needs, and the inability to move hosts is a major disadvantage that is very hard for me to feel comfortable with. Unless your needs are generally smaller, I would recommend finding a good free forum host that will create SQL dumps for its users, even if they charge $50+ for each dump.

Pros: Easy & Clean

Pros:

  • Easy & Clean Administration Panel
  • Various Languages within the Support Forum
  • Helpful, Polite Support Staff

Cons:

  • No suggestion feedback.
  • Very few features in comparison.

Summary:
I know that Forumotion doesn't have the many features that other services may offer, and this was annoying, at first. However, understanding the administration panel and mastering it became one of the simplest tasks, especially compared to other services. Coding is easy, ability to design is supreme, and I just love the support staff and the different support forums for various languages that FM offers to all. They always try to help and even offer promotion services, graphic services...this is just amazing to me and my forum would not be as amazing as it is today without their aid.

Pros: Easy to use and to

Pros:

  • Easy to use and to navigate the admin panel
  • Free
  • Excellent Support Service
  • No restrictions on number of users/posts and activity

Cons:

  • No direct suggestions feedback
  • Less features in comparison to some other hosts.

Summary: Forumotion is a powerful free hosting service which meets the demands of someone wishing to create a stable free forum in a matter of seconds. Forumotion forums do not have any usage caps which many other free hosts do, you can have unlimited members and posts and therefore it is an excellent platform for someone wishing to start a community without the fear of later having to find somewhere else to go once the community grows large. Forumotion also offers free forum support so even if you're new to the world of forum creation and are struggling you can find free support on their friendly support forum. The Admin panel is very easy to navigate and while the lack of built in features may disappoint you, their are a number of communities dedicated to expanding the number of features a forum can have via coding.

Overall Forumotion is one of the best Forum hosting website available on the web and I implore anyone who wishes to create a free forum host to check this one out.
