Award winning service

Proudly serving our customers since launching in 2014, PlushForums won CMS Critic's Award for Best Commercial Forum Software in the same year. With Plush, you know you're getting a premium service at a great price. Our affordable plans deliver a forum hosting service that's fast, secure, and ready to use in minutes.

Why use hosted forum software?

Hosting your own forum software can be rewarding and instructive, but it's a continual challenge. First you need to find a hosting company, configure your server and install the software. Then there are themes and plugins to get working. You may need to hire a developer and designer to get it working nicely.

You'll also have to maintain your community, including taking regular backups and installing critical security updates. And if your site starts to slow down, you'll have to upgrade the server and reconfigure the software yourself.

We love doing this stuff, and we can appreciate why people prefer to go it alone. But if you have other priorities, our professional forum hosting service can help you create your ideal online community in minutes.
