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.
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.
