WebGroups, like many other forum services, uses the phpBB forum software package for their forums. So the forums include a good set of features and customization abilities. Their forum hosting package costs $29.95 per year and includes a GB of data traffic per month, a MySQL database, 100 MB of database storage, phpBB software and an email address. They report that forums will not contain advertisements, banners or pop up ads.
However, WebGroups’ sample forum is full of spam, their features forums are out of date and they do not post contact information for customer support. In addition, when we tried to open a new forum the site was down.
