      We use Bihira for web hosting at Topaz. They have the cheapest rates around in relation to the quality of service they provide, that I've seen. It costs more if you pay on a monthly basis, so try to get a yearly or bi-yearly package if possible. There are also other options, you may want to browse around.

      And you'll need to register a domain name (like pokebattlezone.com or whatever). The prices change for that all the time, I'd browse around at GoDaddy, Moniker, and other domain registrars to get the best deal.

      Then you can download forum software from either myBB, phpBB, SMF, and so on - all free. Stuff like vBulletin or Invision Power Board will cost money so they're probably not worth getting unless you plan for the forum to be large.

      There are FAQs and forums all across the Internet on how to set up a site/forums and advice on how to keep them running smoothly. Good luck.

      "I was posting about Pokemon Battle Zone, but I wasn't advertising!"

      Sorry, but we can't allow threads regarding other servers here. If you need somewhere to discuss events going on at your server then you will need to get your own message boards - just like everyone else.

      There are several websites which will provide you with free message board services, such as the first 5 results that I'm seeing with this Google search. I would recommend that you get your own hosting and install your own forum software if you would like a better sense of legitimacy. I can give you advice in that regard as well.

      If we allowed every server or community to make their own threads here then things would quickly get out of hand. I apologize, but that's the way it has to be. Let me know if you have any further questions.
