    Depends with which free dashboard community do you use. I say, yuku's free forum hosting is quite effective for promotion. But they got a lot of terms to follow though.

    Hmm I've just checked your forum which is based on PHPBB, however, you should make it more popular if you include some more categories and advertise it in a proper way.

    You should read TOS carefully and you'll get the right answer.

    Don't you think that your comment is not related to with this forum thread? You should read forum thread carefully before commenting anything.

    Bad thing about these free forum hosts is you can't have a backup of your forum. They own it once you created it with them. Unless you pay for it I think.

    If you're truly dedicated to your forum's success, then it can be based on a free or paid hosting site and will do well. The important point is that you invest your personal time and energy into the forum to get new members and keep it active. One point that might derail a free forum is lack of ability to place ads or sell ad space. But if you can solve that, you should be able to monetize well. Maybe you could just sell premium subscriber memberships on your forum.

    forum is one of the best way to promote business.numerous businesses allow customers to access their forums and free forum hosting gives all companies, regardless of their size, the opportunity to offer this idea and information sharing without a lot of effort.

    I think your forum still needs a lot of keep up to do.

    You should work on websites with high page rank, for more members and loyal visitors.

    It may not be good for long term campaign. Make sure that the company can support long term branding.
