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.

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.

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. You can do so by creating a post on our support 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.

Data Transfer

If you're interested in transferring your data to our platform, please refer to our white-label service, Forums.net. Running the same great ProBoards platform, but with additional features, Forums.net was designed from the ground up specifically for business and professional communities. Unfortunately, at this time there is no way to transfer your data from another forum platform to ProBoards.


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