Would you buy a domain for free forums?

    ...I know you would buy a domain for free software you can host yourself, but I am not talking about that.

    Would you buy a domain name for a forum that is hosted to you for free by services like Forumer or Invisionfree?

    I would, but only if the forum got big, and I know it will stay big.

    Yeah, after about a year, when I knew my forum wasn't just going to fizzle out, and would be there for the long run, I got a domain for it.

    I wouldn't get one as soon as you make the forum though, like alot of people do, simply because it is too early to know how well the forum will work out, and you may end up wasting your money.

    Domains are not expensive anymore so I really wouldn't hesitate to buy one. I won't be too sad if I waste $10.

    To your left... no your other left.
    Probably not, since if I'm not willing to spend money on it in the first place, why would I spend money on a domain?

    Because someone does not know how to install the script or get web hosting.

    I get a domain once it shows activity.

    well yes, if your forum gets big i think it's a really good decision if you'll buy a domain for it. but the fact is that you don't expect that to happen if you use free software. if you're planning something big from the beginning, pay everything you need to.
