The forum which I helped to set up for Patricia is hosted at board-host.org which keeps going down all the time. Now that the domain and host was put up for sale it looks like we have to find a web host. (see this topic)

Ali, or anyone else know of a cheep UK host which is reliable, fast, supports phpbb2, with ftp access, free domain name included?

Looking at http://www.phpbb.com/ I found a link to http://www.canaca.com/ but itís in Canada, itís not UK but would this be safe to go for this?

Also would it be easy to transfer? (download and upload via ftp) or do I have to start again?

Thanks for any help.

100 web space kinda sucks. lots of downtime, my friend used it once. 1&1 is really good, but people say it has bad tech support. canaca, the hosting company in ontario canada, it ahs a bad reputation on downtime and bad tech support. some people say its fixed, but lets not take chances. i personally think a small orange web hosting is good. i have a coupon too :) not tried yet
