The advantage of free forums is that they are free! You can afford to fail! It is also a great way to learn the basics of forum management.

The disadvantage of free forums is that if you are successful:

  • you may exceed your allowable bandwidth and disk storage space
  • there are limited options for the customization of your forum
  • you may or may not have the ability to use your own domain name, if you want to add that later
  • and want to monetize your forum, you are limited in what you can do (usually you can not do anything)
  • and if you want to move your database of messages and threads to a new host for a paid forum software and paid hosting to further expand, then you are restricted in your ability to do this.
