Interserver provides

shared, vps and dedicated hosting powered by Vanilla

Vanilla is forums software made to help build communities and encourage conversations. As the name implies, this is one of the most basic types of forums out there. Everything is focused on the user generated content rather than any flashy features or anything like that. The forums with this software are, well, vanilla.

This isn’t always a bad thing, however. Many people like the simplicity of the platform. It is not only simple for users to use, which is often very important for many types of communities, but it is also very simple to manage. You can have it up and running in minutes rather than hours. The vast majority of the settings are just the way you will want them right out of the box, which is another perk. While certainly not for everyone, Vanilla forums are an excellent option to consider.
