Are you interested in making your own forum but don't know where to start? If so you are in luck because in this tutorial video you will learn the exact step by step process that I use to first install and then setup forums from scratch. The method that will be revealed in this unique forum creation tutorial video doesn't require that you learn how to code html or css, as everything can be setup using the provided forum visual editor and management control panel. This means that even a newbie lacking knowledge of web development can easily create their own forum using the method laid out in this video.

Using this method you can easily setup your own; industry forum, school, club or organization forum, small business forum, product specific forum, affiliate marketing forum, gaming forum, industry discussion forum, technology forum, internet marketing forum, etc...

Here at ThinkBuildWebsites.com we are dedicated to helping individuals easily setup and install their own forums, blogs and websites. Our provided tutorial videos, this one included, don't require that you have any prior web development experience to successfully follow along. We believe that every individual should be able to build their own forum website if they do indeed wish to.

FYI, the host of this video David Gates has currently built up over 100 top quality forums, blogs and websites since starting up his website development and marketing industry career. To date one of these sites he has created currently receives over 100,000 unique visitors per month without any paid advertising. That stated... if you are looking to make a forum site its safe to say that David can help you out tremendously.

The forum creation method revealed by David in this video can be broken down into three simple steps:

1. Setup the Right Framework for your Forum
2. Install your Forum using a Cpanel Enabled Webhost
3. Create and Customize your Forum using the Easy to Use Simple Machines Forum Creation Platform

Step 1: The first step that you must complete if you wish to create your own forum is to "register a domain name" and "purchase a webhosting package". Just like if you were opening an offline business or organization, websites need both an "address" and "space". Think of the domain name that you will register as being the "address" and the webhosting package as being the "space". The Good News is that acquiring an online "address" and digital "space" can be very inexpensive if you utilize my recommended resource. The resource that I recommend that you utilize is a company named "Just Host" which offers very affordable web hosting packages and domain name registration services.

Step 2: Once you have acquired a domain name and webhosting package to host your forum, the next step is to proceed to install a forum script using the provided Just Host Cpanel. I highly recommend that you choose the Simple Machines Forum script to run your forum due to its ease of use, provided features and the fact that its 100% free to install. Alternative forum creation platforms include; Wordpress, Weebly, Webs.com, Godaddy Site Builder, phpBB, Vanilla Forums, PunBB, MyBB, etc, that stated this tutorial video will be using the "Simple Machines Forum" one. Step by Step Instructions on How to Install the Simple Machines Forum Script are provided in this tutorial video.

Step 3: Last but not least once you have successfully installed your new forum, the next step is to login to the SMF Forum Dashboard and proceed to design your forum to your liking. In this part of the tutorial you will learn how to easily add content to your newly created forum, create forum boards and topics, change your forum appearance, install forum modifications and more. Best of all this can be all completed using the SMF Visual Editor, therefore you don't need to learn how to code HTML or CSS to successfully build a top quality forum.
