The new web hosting account will be exactly like a normal web hosting account.
The base version of the account will have the following caracteristics:
- Free and without ads
- Custom Domain
- 5 email accounts
- 10 email forwards
- ftp access
- 5Mb web space


When you say custom domain, what kind of domain? Is it like www.{yourname}.com or the normal system like {yourname}.getforum.org?
And all the points, it is free?

The custom domain will be like before, www.{yourname}.com domain connected to the account, with this there is no change, no cost for this like before.

No, it does'nt. We don't want to convert the forum hosting into normal hosting accounts with 10 times higher costs. The new hosting accounts is to be able to make webpages with php support, guestbooks etc around the forum in the GetForum forumhosting system.

Right now we have really a lot of people that are using a separate hosting company for the main webpage, email etc, and then then are using their forum on the GetForum host. Our goal is to make that not needed.
We have been offering email, and that you can use your own domain, but ftp and php support has been missing, but soon we can offer that also ;)

But we will be able, to put a dedicated forum in a specific account, when this is needed by a specific customer, that ofcourse will have to pay for it.

What GetForum want's do to simpy said, it to take the best from the normal hosting industry, and the best from the forum hosting industry to a combined complete solution, with no need for something else.

Great idea! But don't you think some people might pass to bigger hosting companies instead? They want FREE things when they access getforum, if they want to pay they'll probably go to hostgator or hosts like that...

Or am I wrong?

You don't have to pay for the basic packages, plus that most people setting up forums wants full help and support with it. We have several people and companies right now that pays extra for full help, another thing is that we are going to offer forums with ssl support for full security.
The packages with prices are not aimed for the mass, unlike big web hosting companies, they are aimed for people that wants to get such help and support that they normally never would get in a normal hosting company.

Just such a simple thing that if you just puts up a normal forum in a web hosting, the forum will get full of spam in notime.

But the prices and options are not fixed, that can be changed both up and down.

Another thing is that if you have a really big forum, you can't put it up in a normal web account. We have forums that are occupying one full server, no hosting company will allow that, it's needed a dedicated server account for that.

Another thing is that we have the knowledge to optimize the system for making forums fast, normally web hosting companies have done zero to optimize.

The aim of the web hosting accounts is not to compete with normal hosting companies, the aims are the following two:

1: Give a small Free real hosting possibility for everyone with a forum, for a webpage, email etc.

2: Offer real web accounts for customers that are willing to pay for full support and help setting up a forum, these accounts are not aimed for the mass. Everyone that knows how to run and install a forum and wants to pay for web hosting have millions of web hosting comanies out there to choose between.
Advantage of running a forum in these accounts:
- The board runs much faster then in normal web hosting
- We give full help and support with everything regarding the board
- We have special security systems for running boards.
- GetForum servers are extremely optimized for running boards


Gooner has installed a forum at hostgator, and he says himself that the forum goes much slower there then in GetForum
