WebGroups specializes in delivering quality turnkey bulletin board systems and forums using the phpBB forum software package. This means that you can expand the offerings on your website with a sophisticated message board system without a lot of cost, headaches and hassles. A seamless solution, WebGroups offers phpBB forums to effectively complement your website while meeting your needs and the needs of your website visitors.

Not all message boards are created alike. Although there are many solutions, WebGroups has built a package designed to be affordable and reliable while offering fast response times.

We ran performance and speed tests on a number of web servers to find the best blend of affordability, reliability and power. Whatever your website structure or design, WebGroups offers a common-sense solution to meet your message board needs.

TEST OUR PERFORMANCE: We invite you to test our boards' performance, yourself. Go to www.tracert.com and sign up for a free service to test performance speed. Enter the urls of some of our hosted message boards and compare them to other providers. We think you will be pleased with the results. If you like the results, and are also interested in webhosting, let us know. We can design a package for your needs.

Right now, for a limited time, we are offering a special package for $29.95 per year! For less than $3 per month, you get 1 Gb of high-speed data traffic per month, 100 Mb of data storage, all rolled up in the open-source phpBB application, a Webby Award nominated message board software package.

It's easy to sign up! Click the button below, fill out the forms and select a name to create your account. We will host your message board on one of our webgroups websites as in the following examples:

Our standard package...an affordable forum online

For only $29.95 a year, you get your own message board on a webgroups server. It will reside on a server and have a name such as webgroups.biz/yourname/ or webgroups.us/yourname/. Our standard package includes:
  • Initial setup provided at no charge.
  • 1 GB (1024 Megabytes) of data traffic per month.
    • $2.50 per additional GB (or part thereof) per month. No need to purchase in advance.
  • A MySQL database!
  • 100 MB diskspace for your database.
    • $2.50 per additional 50 MB (or part thereof) per month. This must be purchased in advance.
  • phpBB2 message board software pre-installed.
  • An email address such as your_forum_name@webgroups.biz or .us.
  • No advertisements.
  • No banners or popups.

    WebGroups provides free initial setup as part of its standard package. Further help and support is provided at standard hourly rates.

What about other options? You can get FTP access where you can install your own modifications to the message boards, install your own styles or themes and customize the look and feel of your message board as well. We can install styles for you, as well. Take a look here at demos of the different styles available.

What is coming next? Check back on this page where we will showcase some of the new board offerings that will be available. We are interested in hearing what types of message boards are of interest to you - let us know - and we will work toward adding that as a custom board offering or as a new standard package.

Free forum hosting?

While they are available on the web, we don't host forums for free. We feel that quality, speed and reliability are important in running a professional website and offering a professional message board or forum. Many companies have shown that you get what you pay for and that free forums cannot be reliable and fast. In addition to performance and reliability problems, they certainly are not free of banner advertisement. Pop-ups and Pop-under advertisement can become so intrusive that visitors could avoid your forum alltogether. We believe that charging a small affordable fee for the webhosting of your forum provides stability and continuity to your message board. We also give you the opportunity to move the forum - including the database data - away from the WebGroups environment should you ever choose to host your forum elsewhere.

Custom Solutions
If you are looking for custom message board services, we can help! We also offer customized solutions and message board consulting and setup services.
For more information about our turnkey or customized message board systems, please contact us. We will be happy to setup and host your new message board.

About phpBB Bulletin Board Software
We have explored a number of bulletin board applications and have been quite impressed with phpBB. Others agree. Nominated along with Google for a Webby Award this year for technical excellence, phpBB is considered by many to be among the best forum software systems on the Internet. As open-source software, it reduces cost of ownership, while providing a robust, stable and dependable bulletin board / forum software package with many great features.
