Good day!
Does anyone know of a good Forum Host for the Mac? Or does it matter what type of computer you have. I am researching a Forum Host for my website. Getting rather confused on who to select. My website host is IPowerweb, but it seems there are separate hosts for forum pages.

Thank you!

QUOTE Thanks

Most hosts should be able to host your forum without any problems at all, it would just be a matter of installing it.

Depending on the forum software it may differ but generally to host a forum you need your host to offer some kind of server side language spport (PHP or ASP usually) and a database.

I tend to use PHPbb which is a fantastic bit of software and very powerful. As long as your host provides the above it does not matter who hosts you. It also does not matter if your using a mac or a pc.

Find a host that utilizes Fantastico for really easy forum script installs.
