HostPresto host some of the largest forums in the UK, on a variety of platforms, phpBB included. Whatever the size of your community, large or small, we can provide an optimised hosting plan to suit.
Optimisation is Key
All forums require a certain level of optimisation in order to perform at their optimum. HostPresto understands this and as a result has created a range of hosting plans specifically optimised for phpBB.
phpBB Hosting Features
All our phpBB Hosting plans come with these great features!
One Click Install
Installing phpBB could not be easier. You can install it with literally a click of your mouse button via our one click installer app which is available across all phpBB hosting packages.
Free phpBB Transfer
If your existing forum is hosted elsewhere and you’d like to migrate to HostPresto, no problem! We can move your forum for you if your old host uses cPanel free of charge.
Free Forum Backup
Backup your forum on a daily basis with our free phpBB forum backup application. You can even restore data from as old as 3 months ago.
Give your forum members a lightning fast forum by hosting it with HostPresto out of our state of the art London data center. Super fast speeds, 24/7/365 with a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
All of our hosting packages are specifically optimised for phpBB right off the bat. All optimisation, configuration and module installation is done for you.
Don’t worry about your forum membership growing or your traffic increasing. We offer unlimited bandwidth across all packages so no restrictions or hidden fees to worry about!
What makes phpBB so popular?
phpBB has long been regarded one of the best free forum solutions out there. Here's why.
Frequently Updated: Open source solutions, particularly communities tend to go stale after a while. Not phpBB. It is one of the oldest most well established forum scripts out there and is still frequently updated to this day.
Easy Customisation: Customising or “skinning” your phpBB forum is extremely simple with basic customisation being able to be performed from right there in the forum settings. No need for cumbersome third party themes.
Security Focussed: Security comes top of the list for phpBB’s requirements. It is said to be an industry leader when it comes to the security stakes so rest assured your community is in safe hands.
All phpBB Hosting Plans Include
All of these great features!
cPanel Control Panel
If you want to control every aspect of your phpBB hosting account there is no better solution than cPanel. You can control e-mail accounts, databases, view website statistics and much more. cPanel comes with over 100 account management functions and is available on all of our web hosting packages, phpBB included.
Some forum software such as phpBB needs slight changes to the server configuration in order to run at its optimum. Whilst any hosting package can technically be configured in this way, HostPresto offers it as standard with all of the packages listed on this page. If you want your website to run at its best, these packages are the way to go.
In a competitive market like web hosting, you need to offer a great product for a great price. That’s what we do here at HostPresto. We offer a package to rival any offered in the industry for a price that is much cheaper than our UK competitors. You can be sure you’re getting value for money.
Value for Money
Our team of support technicians have been supporting phpBB for over 10 years. They’ve seen everything you could possibly imagine so it’s safe to assume that whatever the issue, however big or small, our team will be able to handle it in a timely and professional manner.
30 Day Money Back Guarantee
If on the extremely rare occasion you’re not happy with the service you’re receiving or the package you’ve ordered – you’re entitled to a full no questions asked refund. All we ask is that if you would like a refund to let us know within 30 days of taking out your package. That’s it.

Best for my forum...
"I run a popular Tennis forum on phpBB and have been using HostPresto to serve it for around 18 months now. I won’t lie, there has been some issues getting it up and running but any issue I’ve ever had has been dealt with and resolved almost immediately. If you want to run high traffic forums you definitely need a hosting solution that suits and HostPresto can provide that."
Multi forum user...
"I operate 6 forums, all of them phpBB based and all of them but one gets what I consider a decent amount of traffic on a day to day basis. Naturally with forums things come up that need changing server side, configurations need changing and databases need optimising. HostPresto understand all that and keep all my sites running at peak performance 24/7. Great service."
