SMF software is free, but you will need to pay for a hosting company to host the forum on the internet.

There are sites I believe will host it for you- but I dont think SMF will.

I know something you can do is find a host that offers cpanel and Fantastiko (sp?). You can install SMF through that.

My hosting is pretty cheap at $60 a year which isnt too bad,

SimpleMachines do not provide any hosting. We merely provide the software.

However there are FREE sites which offer hosting of a 'cut-down' version of smf. (where many features like installing mods etc are disabled for security reasons [although some come pre-installed].)

1- do not bump your posts. It takes time for people to respond.
2- post on the help wanted board.

3- you are not going to find someone to pay for your hosting...  so either pony it up yourself or try one of the free smf installations like smfforfree
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

While not casting aspersions on this particular user, a note to all newbies be VERY careful who you give access to your server and your forum.

It's a big security risk that may come back to bite you.

At the very least if getting someone to set it up for you, delete their user account/change passwords once they no longer have any need to access.

In any event, if you are serious about running a forum, you should not trust just any random strangers with admin access. If someone offers to help, that is nice, but before trusting them you should make sure they can be trusted. See their earlier work, their post history here, and so on.

Free hosts go in that random stranger category, I would not easily trust all my data at the hands of a free host.

Don't see the point of bumping a 5+ year old topic  ::)
