Since then, the members didn't like having one plain theme, the setup was ok but would regularly be slow and pages take ages to load and then if you wanted to let the new hosting company know your forum was down you had to pay to submit a ticket. The database can't be transferred as the company won't give it or even sell it. The old hosting company used to allow database downloads for free but were so reliable that we never needed it or anticipated moving hosts.
So now i'm looking to start a forum, i've looked other online hosts, but most seem to have outdated software and support forums that haven't been posted on for over a year, the rest of the online hosts seem to have been taking over by the same big company.
What i need:
- 2 or 3 themes that work on a phone as well as a pc. (ideally that can have a few colours edited)
- a custom domain.
Can anyone tell me what i would need or what options there are available for me to get this sort of thing up and running? and what monthly costs would be involved?
I've tried doing some research online but different sites had information that was very different, especially with bandwidth.
Sorry if i have posted in the wrong section.
