I want to set-up a forum like this one. (Or like a phpbb or some near like it)

Does any one know of any "free" "(with out pop up ads but I donít mind) web hosts,

which are in NZ or NZ based or overseas (donít mind either way.)

Which I can set up a forum on it like this one??

It might also need too ffer ourname.theredomanname.co.nz ??? Or some near like that.

Hope you can help.

Note: it needs a ok amount of disk space/ bandwidth
& if you not too sure about a hosting compay just post the link to it here and i will check it out ;)

www.neopages.net, used by Sal and various other people. PHP. Can build a forum for it, or download one.

There are two main free forums. Well these are the best ones in my opinion anyway.

http://www.snitz.com and http://www.phpbb.org

The first is ASP based and the second is php based. You can run them at dotnetplayground or lycos uk.

if all your looking for is web space to use for a forum, then maybe a remotely hosted forum would be a better alternative. this is where people offer 'free forums' instead of straight out webspace. there are a lot of good ones around, which dont run ads, etc (as far as i know) one i can honestly suggest would be the invision powerboard. its features outshine even subscription forum software, such as vbulletin, etc,

invisionfree >> http://www.invisionfree.com/

another would be ikonboard, which has recently been ported to php from cgi

ikonboard > http://www.myikonboard.com/intro.php

heres a list, of which most im sure would run ads (there are a few gems in there though),

http://www.freewebsiteproviders.com has a HUGE database of free website hosts. You can do a search using their Advanced Search tool to find web hosts which provide what you want.
