Not always, and you will be probablly be in legal trouble if you try and start a free forum site like them... If you can avoid this like I tell most people with names similar to other top sites, your set :-)
I would watch getting a name like a big company owns! I own one it is freephotopost.com and photopost is saying they are going to sue me or something! And I think they hacked my site and now it is down and I need to fix it!
Yes I sure did! I bought it because it had so many members and a good page rank! And because I heard it got good traffic I also wanted the script! And I figured if they gave me hell I could always just keep the script and move the members over to my other domain and move it there basically! But now since the server was hacked or something I can't get the site to work right I backed up the database but I can't get the script working again that sucks!
Well this proboards.com is not a business and they got 125 000 members and I think they get their money in ads. For me this is a hobby and I will try to get some memebers. I want to have an active forum where my friends can come like good old days at my old site
Yes I am the current owner why? It takes awhile for the domain to transfer it just got done transfering today and the whois still says the old owner but that should change soon! I do not know how long this takesthis is the first one I have ever transfered! But the trasfer is finally done just wating on the whois!
