    I've just purchased a new domain and want to set it up exclusively as
    a forum so that it is not only active in real-time, but serves as a
    record of contributions, discussions and exchanges over the next few
    years.

    GoDaddy has some free software called WebSite Tonight which would help
    me to construct a forum of up to five pages. But that is too limiting.
    Does anyone know of freeware that will allow me to build a forum shell
    that will allow members of a particular group to post & respond to new
    subjects and me to moderate (get rid of spam, personal attacks, etc.)
    while generating new pages when needed?

    TIA

    Many thanks. PhpBB looks perfect and GoDaddy supports it.

    Be aware that phpBB has a very poor security reputation. It could be
    better these days, but it would pay to look into it some more.
