    So I fixed the previous issue, now I am on the final step... I went to my mac instead of my laptop to test my forum out and it said that my website url couldn't be found or whatever. Basically I can only access my website through localhost, Someone please help with this issue.

    Have you installed it on your computer rather than a publicly accessible web server?

    Do you have a domain and hosting?
    If not, you will need to purchase those and install it there.

    I am a really big noob with this stuff, can you please explain it a little more to someone who doesn't quite understand.

    Buy a domain (URL).

    Purchase hosting.

    Install XenForo on your hosts server.

    That will then make the site available on the internet.

    I wouldn't know.

    The best place to ask is a general hosting forum.

    He means a whole different forum, not just a different forum here. (I think)

    I would look into something like this:

    Before going with just "the cheapest" should search here what people say about past exp hosting with places like GoDaddy or Host Gator.

    It's a hosting company I am recommending. Matt can host and help you get the forum installed on the web.

    Will it save all the members that are there and will it save all the posts made?

    You would need to import your database. Whatever host you choose should be able to help you with that.

    I'm a bit confused.I thought you said this site wasn't publically viewable, ie your URL can't be found? So how can it already have members?

    Are there any that aren't monthly... Maybe a one time fee.

    Yearly is the closest you will get. No host offers one time payment.
