Hi, Go for a free script. There are many forum building scripts available in internet. One is phpbb script. It is free and anyone can download and place it to any hosted server. Or another option is go for a auto customizable forum site. Lots are there who gives it free of cost for limited space and unlimited space for a little cost. Have a wonderful day.
