Free Forum or Message Boards (BBS) Hosts

Free remote hosting for discussion boards, BBSes, forums or message boards


Free BBS or Forum (Message Boards, Bulletin Boards) Remote Hosting

One way to build a community around your website is to include a message board (otherwise known as forums, web boards, discussion boards, BBS, bulletin boards, etc) on your site, where visitors can leave messages, read messages left by other visitors and interact with you and the other visitors. If you don't want to mess around with Perl CGI scripts or PHP scripts (or ASP or whatever), you can have a message board on your website simply by including a few lines of HTML on your website. The sites listed on this page will host the forum for you, and some allow a high degree of configurability, so that the forum has the facility and appearance that you want for your site. These remotely hosted message boards often impose some sort of advertising on your BBS, in exchange for hosting your forum.

For those who prefer to run their own bulletin board on their own website, check out the Free Message Boards, Forums, BBS, Bulletin Boards PHP Scripts page. If you prefer Perl BBS scripts, see the Free BBS, Message Boards, Forums Perl CGI Scripts page instead.
