    A host provides you with server space. This server space allows you to run various services such as PHP, mySQL, etc. With this you can install applications such as XenForo on top of them. However, you'll need a domain to be able to point to your server, so you can access the space provided to you.

    Really, almost any host will work with XenForo. I strongly suggest staying away from GoDaddy, though.

    You really should read a lot of reviews on their services.

    They are not needed. They are extras that can be added on to your license any time, without obligation.

    Depends where you are located. If you are starting out and dont have members, try a cheap service like hostgator or something before you have decent traffic to move up to a host that can cater for your needs.

    Do your research before buying to get an idea as to what the experience of the customers has been using the host you find.
