The best phpBB hosting stack for flexibility & scalability

The first phpBB Hosting platform you'll love. And the last one you'll ever need.

Host your phpBB forum on managed cloud hosting

Build, deploy and manage all your sites and apps with lightning-fast, multi-platform cloud hosting. Perfect for agencies, ecommerce stores, developers, multi-site hosting and high traffic sites. Advanced multi-site management features and filters put you firmly in control, no matter how many sites you have. It’s a huge time (and sanity) saver. Deploy unlimited websites to launch as many new projects as you want.

Optimised PHP - the 20i way

Our developers have customised PHP-FPM and OPcache to ensure that your website gets the resources it needs, even if it’s really busy. Our code boosts performance for every website running PHP 5.6 or above. As we’re not constrained by CloudLinux, we don’t have to impose limits on cores, memory, bandwidth and processes.

Advanced security for your forum

We bake security in to every layer of our hosting, with free Wildcard SSL, brute-force login protection, IP address block manager, FTP lock, file permissions checker, website password manager and web application firewall all as standard. Enterprise-level protection covers you against DDoS attacks, plus our storage is resilient to the level that whole storage servers and disks can fail with no downtime. We also take daily backups off-site for extra protection.

Global data centre locations

Deliver an even faster experience for your forum members with our global data centres and CDN nodes serving lightning-fast speeds wherever your traffic is coming from.
