phpBB Hosting with

Existing Clients allows our existing customers who are still using the previous version of phpBB to upgrade to the latest phpBB available on the market. The request can simply be made through the control panel and your phpBB website will be converted in 24-48 hours time. Nothing is even simpler than the request through the control panel.

Potential (New) Clients

New clients can automatically install the latest phpBB via the control panel, with one single click, at no additional costs. Starting from the Starter Hosting package (with an additional MSSQL database add-on), you can start hosting your websites on phpBB and enjoy all its new features and technologies.


Client needs to ensure that his hosting package does have one new MySQL database available for the installation. Without the availability of the MySQL database, the free installation will not work and hence, your phpBB cannot be installed.

What is phpBB?

Since its creation in 2000, phpBB has become the most widely used Open Source forum solution. Like its predecessors, phpBB 3.0 “Olympus” has an easy to use administration panel and a user friendly installation process, which allows you to have a forum set up in minutes. With a large and highly customisable set of key features coupled with a standards compliant interface, phpBB will grow with, and compliment your website. With millions of installations worldwide, it is no wonder phpBB is one of the most popular ways to create and support a community.

History of phpBB

phpBB was started as a simple UBB-like forum. phpBB 1.0.0 was released on December 9, 2000, with subsequent improvements to the 1.x codebase coming in two more major installments.

The current release of the phpBB bulletin board system contains many new features that are not found in its older sibling. New Release also provides administrators with much more control over every aspect of the forum software, such as how it is displayed to management of user and group permissions. Consequently, this has increased more  functionality makes the administrative interface much more complex.
