What's the step by step process after you download xenforro?

I'm creating a forum, and I want to know what happens exactly after I download all the components, I want my new website to have everything the demo version has, and how much will it cost to have my own domain. Will members be able to post images without me purchasing the image gallery?

The media gallery add-on is not required to upload images to posts.

You can see the total price in the cart after you add the products you want.

You will need to separately purchase a domain and hosting.

When I purchase the license, will I be able to build the forum using the xenforo templetes and whatnot, or do I have to go to another website and build the forum using the xenforo software?

It doesn't come with any styles aside from the default, you can download them from the Resources page though: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/styles-2-x.45/

There's both free and paid premiums available.

If you need help with hosting & setup, I'd recommend KnownHost, even a shared hosting plan: https://www.knownhost.com/shared-hosting.html

They have fantastic support, and can even help you set up your board if you require technical assistance.

Anywhere I can find custom themes?

If you are on Digital Ocean, you really need to understand Linux and basic concepts like web server (apache/nginx), php as it's a self-managed service. Technically you need PHP, a database (e.g. mysql) and a web server installed before you can move to installing Xenforo. I would recommend you get someone to help out.

I'm on digital ocean as well so if you want I can host you until you grasp everything. You can get a domain for real cheap just Google "$0.99 domain" and the first site that comes up is GoDaddy. Click that and you'll be taken to the page to search for the domain you want and it'll cost you $1.67 total if memory serves correct. PM me if you need any other help. I'm working right now but I'll respond as soon as I can.
