I have a small software company and we have a forum (WebWiz Forums) on our site. Honestly, with all the spammer attacks, it's more hassle than it's worth.

I'd like to outsource the forum to some 3rd party site. What's a good site to setup a forum on?

It needs to have the following qualities:

  • Free
  • Reliable
  • Handle spam properly
  • If they want to display ads, I am ok with that
  • It does not necessarily need to be under my domain name. It could be mycompany.TheForumCompany.com

FreeForums.org looks pretty good.

Features include:

  • Custom Admin Panel
  • Over 150 different styles
  • Ability to add Modules for extra functionality
  • 24/7 Support
  • Spam prevention
  • 99.9% uptime
  • Unlimited bandwidth

There is also the ability to upgrade your package:

  • Host on your own domain - $15 per year
  • Ad Removal - $4.95 a month
  • Copyright removal - $10 per year
