    Hey, I was 100% sure that I saw a page on XenForo where I could purchase hosting and pay an x amount per month with a free license but it was only free because it was hosted on XenForo's servers or something. Anyone know where this page is? I can't seem to find it again -_-

    I have never heard of anything like this......I may be wrong but I don't think that has ever been an option. I know IP.Board has that available.

    Thanks Ernest, it seems I got the two confused due to a Skype post that said XenForo.. I appreciate your reminder that IP Board exists... Haha, enjoy your night :)

    You too. I can say though that you pay a hefty price tag per month with limited resources to get their hosting solution with the license included. Like only so many people online at a time and such. Plus I would rather have access to the files directly and not the encoded version on their hosting solution.

    We were offering a promotion of first month free with proof of a new license purchased during the $110.00 sale. Since that sale is now over, thread was deleted at my request, maybe your thinking of that?

    I just looked into it a bit more and you can't even use your own domain, you must use a domain provided by them, so it's not even worth paying even $5 a month for it.

    I didn't know that. I thought you could use your own domain. Yeah then it's not worth anything if you have to use a domain they give you. If you do end up buying an xF license and looking for quality hosting check out xfhost.me

    Yeah, I thought that as well. & alright, I'll certainly keep xfhost.me in mind, our subscription of GoDaddy ends on the 8th, so I plan to get us far away from GoDaddy after that.

    May I ask if you're just a member of the host or do you own it?

    He's a client, xfhost.net (my banner) and xfhost.me are the same company :) I grabbed the .me just simply for the cute effect of host me.

    Haha alright, awesome! Do you think you could spare some connection details such as speeds?

    There has never been a hosted XenForo solution (eg rent a license).

    BlackCobra is thinking of one of the IPB [1.x?] licensing schemes they offered many years ago???

    That's fairly incorrect, I am a on-hosted customer and I use my own domain just fine. :)
