    Hello, I need some advice. I have a free forum from freeforums.org but want to upgrade/ or start a new one.

    I want to spend about £60 a year for a site and domain name. Is this possible?

    Freeforums charge to upgrade to premium for about £35 a months and domain name for about £12

    Copyright removal for about £8

    Should I go for this or something else thanks

    Any advice on this would be great thanks.

    Yes, you can get hosting and a domain name for £60/year.
    Software can be free.

    That's enough to start your forum.
    Should you be lucky and have hundreds of members and lots of posts, images you can change plan or host.

    It's best as long as you can create a meaningful name with it.
