HostIT has in depth knowledge of the SMF forum software, along with hosting online forums for many years. Our team members have contributed code, built modifications and themes for the SMF forum software.
Our hosting services are optimized with SSD hard drives for extra speed. We have hosting plans for all sizes whether you are just starting out or have a large forum with millions of posts we can host them all!
For small to medium sized forums we recommend using our shared hosting plans. All our shared hosting plans come with cPanel which is a control panel to manage your website. cPanel gives you access to phpMyAdmin, FTP, DNS, email, file manager and more!

The next step up is a virtual private server (VPS). A virtual private server gives full control over your hosting environment and dedicated resources.
We offer both Linux (CentOS) virtual private server and Windows server virtual private server for your forum.
Virtual private servers are self managed but we can also offer either fully managed private server or install service plan. Our install service would include setting up Apache, MySQL, and PHP for your SMF version. For more information on our VPS Plans click
