Well my friend and I are looking into creating a Minecraft server. He wants a forum for the server, since he expects it's going to be big. Anyways I'm just looking for a free web hosting site or something along the lines of that, so I can create a forum. Any help is appreciated.

Please don't. Not after the whole SOPA bullshit.

Never use them.

I used to use Freewebs before I took a web design course. Not an amazing site by any means but you can add forums, though it is damn near impossible to get a community flowing.

or you could go down the WordPress route and then buy the URL through them.

For the record, I don't even know what Go Daddy is. I just know the Giant Bomb crew can't ever seem to stop talking about them.

Really? No one else has posted it yet?

Seriously though, bad ads aside I've heard Go Daddy isn't that bad.

Depends on how serious you are. If you are trying to make a serious website, I would recommend any of the below options--

ASP.NET- This is my personal favorite. The only downside is it is from Microsoft, so it requires a Windows server to host it.

Django - Giant Bomb was built on this web framework, so you are familiar with what it is capable of. It does sadden me that they are moving away from Django, as I believe it is the web framework with the brightest future.

Ruby on Rails - Even though I don't care much for it, you cannot argue with popularity. Twitter is one of the largest websites on this framework.
