Sound good but when I go to that link it takes me to proboards.com

When you say what do I need to host a proper forum it all depends on which forum software you are going to use.
Tech Forums uses vBulletin but that doesn't come cheap But there are alot of free software forums about.

PHPBB (http://www.phpbb.com/) is free, but you need hosting that supports PHP. My first suggestion to you is to look into getting some decent hosting (not free), because there's no way I'd regularly visit a forum that has a popup on every page.

Free: phpbb and Invision Board are the best two free ones IMO.

Vbulletin cost:
Leased License (1 year) $85US
vBulletin Owned License (Life Time with one year of updates) $160US

As for hosting order a package with todayshost.com and we will give you a domain of your choose for free.

Thankyou
