Simple Machines Forum (SMF) optimised website hosting from NetHosted
We provide a cPanel web hosting environment that supports the latest version of SMF on our UK based servers. Simple Machines Forum — SMF in short — is a free, professional grade software package that allows you to set up your own online community within minutes. Its powerful custom made template engine puts you in full control of the layout of your message board and with our unique SSI - or Server Side Includes - function you can let your forum and your website interact with each other.
As we offer Installatron hosting this means you can simply install SMF via the automated installer, saving you time and getting your forum up and running quickly. Installatron is an automated application installer, similar to Fantastico but better supported and offering a wider range of applications, making the install process quick and painless.
