Im sure if you ask nicely, most hosts will install a forum for you, if you also purchase hosting off them. I would recommend Invision Board www.invisionboard.com

There are some nice boards out there. I like PHPbb, free and pretty nice. Lots of people like VBulletin, but I dislike having to pay for something that I can get pretty close for free (phpbb).

I agree with the previous poster though, many hosts would be happy to install a simple script for you if you are a new customer.

Most hosts allow you to host php and boards based on MySQL. If you have a board that's huge your host might ask you to move or go to a dedicated server. I know we're hosting quite a few boards......

If you're going to host a vbulletin board, from experience I know that you won't even use 1GB bandwidth everyday, even if you have 20 people online all the time...so most hosts will/should allow it , it's not as if a PHP/mySQL driven forum messes up servers like UBB.

I'm expecting the forum site to have 200 online users all at the same time. Is it ok if i'd just use XMB or other free forums? Somebody recommended Invisionboard. Anyway, this is just one of my plans. How much bandwith and space needed is what i would like to know first.

Ok.. quick tip... If you have a specification in mind then it generally helps to provide as much details as possible so that people understand the context to your question...

If you're talking about 200 users all at the same time though I'd be looking at a dedicated machine with at least 50Gb+ on it... In fact I'd probably suggest a heck of a lot more BW...

In short it won't be cheap.

50GB is A LOT of bandwidth. It all depends on the software you are using, and what your 200 users are doing (posting, reading, etc). It's best to choose a host that will allow you to upgrade indefinitely
