But if you want your own web site domain name then you need these things : a domain name, a web site hosting service provider, a forum CMS(content management software).
Some web site hosts can install forum software for you. If your host cannot, you can install it yourself. Just read the documentation of the forum software and follow steps.
You can get domain name from a registrar like www.godaddy.com. They also provide web hosting service or you can choose from tons of others. Look for a web host which offers forum CMS - that way you can have commercial forum software on your web site for free. There are free web hosting providers too but I dont know if they support installing forum software.
If you do not want commercial forum software, then you can get OpenSource forum CMS from here : http://php.opensourcecms.com/scripts/show....&cat=Forums
For installing any Forum CMS, your web host should be able to provide support for a SQL based database system like mySQL, postgreSQL, MSSQL etc. It should also support scripting language like PHP, ASP etc in which the forum CMS is written.
