phpBB is a hugely popular open source bulletin board platform. As one of the market leaders in forum technology, you can’t go far wrong in customising phpBB to your forum needs – and where better a place for your phpBB hosting than Hosting.co.uk and one of our many affordable hosting plans?

Bulletin boards are often a daunting field for people to get started considering the amount of work involved in setting up and maintenance – especially if you are not of a development background. Fortunately, phpBB allows you to start shaping your forum pretty swiftly. This means you can customise your bulletin board without the need to edit any code directly as you can use existing user created content. For advanced users however, phpBB can be integrated with other platforms.

Wide Support of Databases Out-of-the-Box

An important area to draw your attention to is the wide support for a variation of different databases. phpBB supports, though not limited to, the likes of MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Firebird and OpenLink Virtuoso to name a few. As a widely supported platform, there are many options to install user created databases – at no cost – to further customise your proposed forum.

Further customisation can be pursued with unlimited levels of sub-forums, a moderation board and dedicated admin. Due to the nature of a bulletin board, permissions can be assigned to a group of moderators and members to allow/disallow access to certain features and general management of the board.
