Why sparkBB?

With all of the free forum hosting services on the web today, why should you choose sparkBB? We specifically built our system to handle the stress of thousands of forums growing at once. Traditional PHP-based forums consume far more resources and aren't built for the mass forum hosting environment. Read more about why sparkBB is the right choice for your free forum here.

Our "99.9% Uptime 50x" Guarantee.

Every second your forum is down you're losing productivity, revenue, and the confidence of your members. Period. Our pledge a credit for fifty times (50x) any downtime experienced over our 99.9% uptime pledge on all premium services. For example: a failure lasting 10 hours would result in a credit of 500 hours of free premium service; a failure lasting a full day would result in a 1,200 hour, or 50 day, credit.
