Switch to ProBoards Free Forums

If you're considering moving your existing forum to ProBoards' free forum hosting service, we'd like to welcome you. ProBoards is the largest free forum community on the Internet. With brand new state-of-the-art software, the best customer service in the business, and an expansive suite of customization options at your disposal, we're confident your online community will thrive here.

Voted "Best Hosted Forum Service" in both 2011 and 2012, ProBoards has provided feature-rich, free forum hosting to the online community for over 13 years. Regardless of how big your forum community grows, ProBoards will provide you with the bandwidth you need, the reliability you expect and the 24/7 support you depend on.

ProBoards Version 5

On April 29th, version 5 of our forum software went live. Faster, more powerful, and packed with brand new features, ProBoards Version 5 vastly expands and streamlines forum management for administrators while enhancing the forum browsing experience and ease of use for members.

With live forum search tools that produce results as you type, a plugin system that allows administrators to quickly install and configure add-ons to enhance or add functionality, forum themes that can be endlessly customized within a CSS-based editor, and an online library where forum admins can browse, download and share themes and plugins with each other, there's never been a better time to move your forum to the ProBoards service and enjoy the new and innovative features we have to offer.

Relocation Incentives

We want you to host your forum with us, regardless of size. If you are moving a forum community with at least 50 registered members, we're able to provide some premium upgrades to you at no charge. We'll happily provide you with three months of ad-free forum hosting and one year of our custom domain service to you free of charge, just for switching.

If your community is especially large, we understand the notion of changing services can be daunting. If you're interested in moving a forum community with 200 or more active members and have access to your forum's database, in addition to providing relocation incentives we will also work with you in seeing what can be done about copying your forum's data to ProBoards. We will work to ensure the smoothest transition possible for you. Please indicate in the form below if you are looking for us to migrate data from an old forum for you.

Terms and Conditions

To take advantage of these incentives, let us know about your move to ProBoards within 30 days of creating your new free forum. Once we've confirmed that you have switched to ProBoards, we'll begin your three month ad-free service and set up your free year of custom domain hosting. Please remember, this offer is only valid for 30 days from when you create your new ProBoards forum. To take advantage of our domain linking offer, you must already have purchased a domain name from a domain name registrar.

We're excited to have you join our forum family, and we're sure that you'll find moving to our free forum hosting service to be the next great step in the growth of your online community.
