Interserver provides

shared, vps and dedicated hosting powered by Phorum

Phorum is a platform for making forums based websites. The word Phorum is actually Latin for forum, which is where they got their name. The initial development of this system started way back in 1998, making it one of the oldest and most well-established options still in development today. It is coded using PHP and the database type it uses is MySQL, which is pretty standard for these types of websites. It is made to be able to run on a variety of types of web servers and operating systems, which makes it a great option for most web masters.

The system is very powerful and is said to be an ideal option for huge forum communities. It can be great for smaller communities too of course, but if you have a site that is drawing 100,000+ members and millions of posts, this is one of the better options to consider. The developers of this system are still working on updates, fixes and expansions to help keep this platform running smoothly for their users.

Final Thoughts

This is a really powerful forums system that is going to help you set up and maintain an online community. If you are looking for a free option that can support the largest of communities, this is clearly one of the best choices you could make. If you are just starting out with a small community, it may be overkill, but it will still get the job done. Overall, this really is a nice option to consider.
