I have been looking for a way to set up a phpBB forum for my site (to replace the forum software I am currently using) for quite a while now. Unfortunately I can't host it on my own server (which, in any case, I don't control) because it is a Win2K server with no php support and (apparently) no database support either. (You're probably asking why don't I just switch hosts, but the deal is considerably sweetened in other areas, so I put up with the inconveniences).
However, now I discover Informe phpBB webhosting!
See the links on the right hand side of [phpbb.com...]
This is perfect for my needs. But I've never heard them mentioned before.
Anyone else? How do they stay in business with no obvious revenue stream? Is it a promotional vehicle for phpBB? Does anyone know what the deal is here?
