I have a private domain, for example (mydomain.com) and I would like to use it entirely for hosting of a forum. Is there any hosting which can provide free phpBB hosting for a private top level domain name? Thank you very much.

We highly recommend that you do not use a free host. Everyone of them has certain issues and limitations. However if you must use a free host FreeHostingTalk can assist you in locating a host.

I do prefer a free hosting at this stage to get all familarize with the settings before moving to a paid host. I don't mind the performance and restriction issues at the moment. Any recommendations are appreicated. Thanks.

Trust me, it's going to be much, much more of a headache for you to go with a free host and then move to a paid host. Just go with paid hosting, it's not at all expensive or difficult to set up. :)

We do not allow hosting recommendations. That is why I gave you that link, thanks.

If all you want to do is practice why not set up a server on your pc and install phpBB there? If you break it you can just re-install it.
