We offer the best feature on the market
PunBB is a fast and lightweight PHP-powered discussion board. Its primary goals are to be faster, smaller and less graphically intensive as compared to other discussion boards. PunBB has fewer features than many other discussion boards, but is generally faster and outputs smaller, semantically correct XHTML-compliant pages.
shared, vps and dedicated hosting powered by PunBB
PunBB is a lightweight platform to build online forums and communities. It is made in PHP and coded specifically to be less resource intensive than most of the other forums platforms available today. This is done by leaving many of the most common features off, which does leave some people disappointed. You will find, however, that this platform is much more responsive and easier to work with than the others out there. Users will have faster load speeds; which people will love.
The faster load speeds is one of the main reasons why this platform was made. Related to that, this system can run on a much more basic hosting server than most other forums systems would need. Even if you’re getting a fair amount of traffic with lots of posts, for example, a good shared hosting package from InterServer should be more than enough. The system has been online and available since 2003 and while it is still actively being developed, it doesn’t get updates too often (last one was a little over six months ago).
PunBB is a surprisingly nice and easy to use forum system that will meet the needs of people who want something simple, yet functional. It is a fast system to set up, and visitors will find it equally speedy. On the other hand, it is also lacking some of the more desirable features that other platforms offer. So, you need to decide whether you’re looking for a simple, easy and fast forum or something much more advanced. There is no right or wrong answer here so if you are going with fast and easy, PunBB is a great option. If not, you’ll want to give another platform a try.
